How do SpeedRay Reflections work?

There are three different reflection types in Lumion:

SpeedRay Reflections are available via the Reflection effect in Lumion Pro:

Version 8 and above: Movie/Photo Modes[/i] FX -> Add Effect -> Light & Shadow tab -> Reflection

Versions prior to V8: Movie/Photo mode -> New effect -> World tab -> Reflection

Materials that have Reflectivity and Gloss will reflect the local environment. This creates a much more accurate and defined reflection on any surface. This setting is a lot faster to render than Planar Reflections (via the Reflection effect) but slightly slower to render than Projected Reflections. The reflection can apply to any surface as well as to planar surfaces.

Use the Gloss slider of materials to adjust the amount of blurriness in the reflection.

You do not need to add any planar surfaces to enable this reflection type to work - just include the effect and turn on the setting. Any surfaces selected for planar reflections will continue to be rendered as fully planar reflections, even if SpeedRay Reflections are turned on.
