Reflected refections

Can Lumion reflect, having set up reflection planes in Effects a water material in a glass material?
IE: Can Lumion reflect reflections.
For example; I have a swimming pool with a water material and a glass balustrade around it, can Lumion reflect the water in the glass?
So far I see that it does not.
I have tried a glass material for the water with the same result.
It seems Lumion cannot reflect transparent materials. But the only available transparent materials in Lumion are glass and water and neither can reflect each other.
Am I missing something?

Hi gtimages, you're right.

This is a known limitation in Lumion which also applies to certain other semi-transparent objects/materials, for example smoke and fire objects. It basically means that you sacrifice a bit of accuracy for speed.
