1.5 - Screenspace Reflections

An overview of the Reflections example level, example 1.5: Screenspace Reflections



Screenspace Reflections are a dynamic post process effect. While it can only reflect what is on screen, thusly creating some odd artifacts on perfectly reflective surfaces. However, by adding a bit of roughness to a Material, these artifacts will be blended away.

To enable Screenspace Reflections, use the console command r.ssr 1 or select in the Viewport Show > Lighting Features > Screen Space Reflections.
