What was it; flat mirror, reflect/refract, or raytrace, out of idle curiousity?
None of the above. It's an Architectural Design material rendered in Mental Ray. There is no method I know of to accomplish quite the same thing using the scanline renderer, which is one reason why I use Mental Ray and its advanced materials almost exclusively now.
...I didn't even think of that. *headbash*
I've never used any of the Mental Ray materials... that's at a depth I've never quite gotten down to. (Though I'm using Maya, and I'm not sure that there are the same "mental-ray-specific" materials in there, since the software is quite a bit different in terms of how it models materials)

Is this something built into Mental Ray's renderer, or are you using the stand-alone version?
