I have imported some wine glasses, applied a glass material, they render reflections wonderfully in movie mode, (see attached) all great. But what does the reflection control sphere do now? there wasnt one in the scene and the reflections look great?
Please read my earlier reply:
From Lumion 2 and onwards, the developers decided to place the Reflection Object several hundred meters above the terrain by default. This results in generic reflections of the surroundings which, again, is not ideal in all situations, especially when rendering interiors.
You might want to add the Reflection Control
object (Lights & Special objects category -> Utilities -> Reflection Control Object
) to the room to improve the projected reflections on the glasses.
If your camera moves during your animation you can also use the Move
and Advanced Move
effects to animate the Reflection Control object
By the way, I don't see any planar reflections on the floor?
What you need to do is to assign a reflection plane to the floor in the Reflection
effect, and then make the floor material more reflective.TIP:
A great way to preview the reflections in Build
mode while you adjust the floor material is to click on the new Build with effects
button in the top left corner.
