[Resolved] Video Reflections

I'm having difficulty with surfaces showing a reflection of an object that is around a corner. In picture mode, the reflection I see is what physically makes sense, the objects that are in line with the views eyesight. But in video, its like the light bends around the corning and shows the objects that were behind me at the start of the video. Is this a glitch that is in lumion 9.3.1, or is there something on the materials property that I need to change?

See attachments for good and bad. The reflections in the bad are from a photo (to show the outside of the building) that I have at the front of the model, around the corner from the elevator doors.

Hi EastwoodEXP, it looks like those surfaces are using the least accurate reflections, i.e. Projected Reflections.

Did you assign a Reflection Plane to those surfaces yet?

Thank you Morten,

I added the reflection plane in video and it helped a lot. But there is sadly a new problem. At the bottom of the reflection there is what appears to be reflection of grass. There is no grass visible from inside my model, so I'm clueless as to where this might be coming from.

No problem, please zip + upload the .LS9 Scene file to a file host, e.g. transfer.pcloud.com, and forward the download link to [email protected]

Please also let us know which Photo or Clip number we should render.

Thanks in advance.

Im sorry, but this client is confidential and I can't share the file. My Project manager is a lot more pleased with how its turning out now however. Thank you for your assistance.

We can sign an NDA if necessary.

Did you make sure to set the Flicker Reduction slider in the Reflection Effect to a low value?

Flicker Reduction was the problem, I just didn't play with the settings enough to see that.
Thank you again for your help.
