    Silver and Wood. I saved these in my other application without compression to TIF and they worked.

    In the context of this thread some of you might be interested in an old mini-tutorial I made about a Xara technique to create the look of extruded metallic text that appears to reflect its context. You can find it here.

    Regards, Ross

    Thx Ross, nice Effect, how come you on this idea?

    I have played with the Effect and have it modified with a BumpMap-Layer, really good Idea from you!

    TIF info from the chrome plugin reflection maps:

    • 72dpi (but it works with 96, it's just a Mac/PC thing)
    • keep it small, 100px square is more than ample
    • 24-bit colour
    • no compression

    Smile Re: New Chrome-Effects with ReflectionMaps

    This is great, thank you guys for posting. I've been poking around for ages looking for a way to change the default chrome images, you'd think there would be an option within the plugin to do this.

    You've helped me get closer to the effect I'm trying to get on speaker cones...

    Hi I appreciate your post was a long time ago but I am trying to get a chrome effect in Designer Pro 11. Can anyone recommend a live effects plugin that works please?

    Welcome to TalkGraphics. As you have used a range of Xara / CC products, you should understand the power of blends, art brushes and names colours: http://www.xaraxone.com/webxealot/workbook44/page_6.htm.
    No need for a live effect at all.

    Acorn - My currently active Xara software: XDPX (current, v15, v12 & 11 (64-bit)), unserviced XWD Premium 15 & 12, XPGD10, X3D7; lots of licences back through time (to CC's Artworks). If your Post identifies a Xara software fault, please raise it directly with Magix --> support2.magix.com.
