I am trying to use reflection probes, are they supported or need special setup, cause the baked realtime map is missing in the export

Only custom probes are supported and when using an anchor reference (via the Renderer component)

Thanks a lot for the quick answer. Any docs to read about?

What is the engine-component/reflection-probe than being used for?

by user 144387642140655616

The component does apply the reflection probe but we only export custom assigned cubemaps right now (so the realtime baking in Unity etc is not supported right now but you can still bake probes using an simple editor script which is what we do in another project for example)

Same with the anchor: right now we only apply them for objects that use an anchor instead of bounding checks for every object in the scene to see if they are inside a reflection probe volume

We might add support for it later again if there’s enough demand / a project requires that

“Custom Probe” as in: set to custom and bake

Oh great, thanks for clarifying! Will look into this right now :slightly_smiling_face:

Is there some docs about those anchors? Or a sample scene I can checkout to see how they are tied together?

by user 144387642140655616

Ill setup a scene for you tomorrow

(let me know if you got it working ^^)

Trying my best right now :wink: You can just point me in the right direction if you want, meanwhile I keep on building the scene for the client :slightly_smiling_face:

Hello @Johannes did you figure it out? :slightly_smiling_face:

I tried, but could not :smile: Meanwhile I was testing the performance of other unity parts converted to needle which turned out in nice results :slightly_smiling_face:

Ok will provide a simple sample :slightly_smiling_face:

and happy to hear

Thank you very much for providing me the sample! The project is quite under some time pressure, so I was not really able to test out for a couple of days as I would have liked. So thanks again for saving me time here :slightly_smiling_face:

Do you have the samples repository downloaded? I just pushed a little scene there :slightly_smiling_face:
