View Full Version : Blurred reflection looks like motion blur ?

10-05-2014, 05:47 AM

while trying to set up luminoous geometry as lights so that they get reflected,
I noticed that the reflection looks more like motion blur than like reflection.


I tried a lot of different settings already but the reflection always looks more or less like shown in the screenshot.
Is this how a blurred reflection should look? I am not sure.

Scene is attached as well (ignore the strange ligjhting; it is all test in progress).

Think of it as though you're seeing the sun setting over the ocean.. the "blur" of the sun will spread vertically a lot. I think this is LW creating the same sort of effect.

If you want a more uniform result, you'd need to be looking at a reflection at a much more perpendicular angle to the ground.

Sadly that's now 'correct'. The old style is really very wrong (pre LW 11). That said there should be *some* cross bluring but LW's shader is not that sophisticated yet.
