    Fire reflection in eyes. How do you do it ?

    Greetings all
    I’ve trawled the web and this site but alas cannot find what I’m looking for.

    I’m not looking for a mega complicated material but one that allows the reflection of fire particles in the eyes of a character.

    I’ve tried several ways from some projects and my own materials but cannot get fire from the starter content to reflect in the eyes / material.
    The character is a cartoon caricature so not realistic but need the eyes to reflect the items / things around it. Just a reasonable flicker in the eyes would be a good start.
    I’m using a GTX 1080 so I do not have raytracing.

    Please can anyone help out.
    Thanks in advance.

    Easy way: add a point light where the fire is.
    Medium way: make the eye have its own material and increase specular and metallic a bit, but reduce roughness, basically making it slightly reflective.
    Hard way: see Epic example with the eye shader in the learn tab.
