    Hi Roland,

    To create an animated reflection on the Bevel, load a Layer Map as the Reflectivity Map. For the Layer Map, you can just use one of the presets such as Punchy Reflections, and apply that as a Pre-Comp. In the Pre-Comp, animate the Punchy Reflections map by moving it left to right, and you will have an animated bevel highlight.

    Best,
    Edward
