Mirror in Iray

I am looking for a mirror that works with Iray. I have the Deco Mirror (https://www.daz3d.com/deco-mirror) and tried to convert it with the RSSY 3Delight to Iray script, but it didn't work. Any suggestions?

    The converter doesn't have a good mirror finish shader setting, defaulting to a General Iray Shader. You can try applying one of the shiny DAZ Uber shaders (included with Studio) on the mirror surface, or any other shader presets you might have.

    You could also fiddle with the settings, based on the inital values from the converted surface. Change the base mixing mode from Metalicity/Roughness to Specular/Glossiness and make the base colour almost pure black (this prevents the surface color itself from contributing), and Glossy Layered Weight 1.0, Glossiness 100%. This will give a reflection, but a little dim, so lighten the Glossy Specular to something brighter.

    There is a Mirror preset in Homestyle 2 Iray Shaders, if you have it.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'll see what I can do.

    I don't have that Shader list and may look into it.

    Good point.
