    Newbie Q: ground reflections with radiosity?

    Hi folks,

    I've begun doing radiosity renders using .hdr in Image World, but when I composite them with 2D photo backgrounds in LW I get shadows of the rendered object on my ground plane ok, but I can't for the life of me get reflections of it. The lack of a ground reflection makes the composite look unrealistic.

    If I crank up the reflection parameter I get a bit of reflection rendered from the .hdr environment (I assume) but nothing from the scene objects. Can some kind soul offer some clues as to where my newbie efforts are going astray, please?

    Many thanks,
    Slim

    Have you turned on raytraced reflections in render options?

    Captain Obvious,

    You are well-named, a gentleman and a scholar

    It seems I turned on Ray Refl everywhere but there! You hit the nail on the head.

    Thanks,
    Slim
