Been using shadow catcher a lot lately which works great for including shadows in the alpha channel
but have a need to include reflections as well.
Maybe a plug-in or setting somewhere I canít find?

Thanks,

Carl

LW2018 provides an auxiliary buffer output called Shadow_Catcher_Reflection which only contains the reflections from a surface set to a Shading Model of Shadow Catcher:

When you render, you'll need to make sure to check the Save column for that buffer in the Render Properties=>Output panel and specify the path, type, etc. of the output file(s). If you specify a 32-bit file format for this buffer's output it will contain an Alpha channel for compositing.
