Is there any solution, workaround to remove the reflective surface from imported photobaords?
I don't think they always reflect but they do if other reflective surfaces are present such as water. Note in the first image the two children and the man in the pool. The boy has a reflection of the man in the pool and water, the girl has a reflection of the pool and paving and the man in the pool has a reflection of the opposite side pool light, and water over his body and face, most of the hair and over the paving to the right of his head.
Repositioning the camera can sometimes remove the worst ones but never all - it takes a lot of photoediting afterwards to make it look right.
In the second image the background is a photoboard. On the left image you see the reflection of the house and the sun (presumably) on the background photoboard image. On the right image I deleted the water and the reflections of the photoboard disappeared also.
This does not seem to happen with the built-in photoboards (eg woman in centre behind the pool appears OK) but always seem to appear on imported ones as if the imported image is reflective - but only if water is used in the model (?).
Is there some technique in saving the image or in the import process that is needed to stop this happening - or any other workaround? Or is it an issue similar to the reflective textures on 3DS files mentioned here: http://www.cadsoft.com/forum/index.php/topic,7953.0.html
