environment light in reflections - not working

Hello,

In my reflection pass, there are no reflections from my environment map, which I placed in an environment light. I see object-to-object reflections, but the faces which are facing outward into space are black.

In my EngLight, I have:
Light set: Lights
Shadow Set:
Intensity: 1 (though I have tried raising the intensity and exponent to 100 and it does nothing)
Environment Map: I tested many different EXR, HDR, and JPEG
Linking Set: Reflection

I didn't change anything in the Render Graph.

Please help, thanks!

Hi,

Environment are considered as lights, thus won't appear in the Reflection pass (which is the indirect specular) but will appear in the Specular instead. If you need to render it separately, you have to render the Specular pass with the EnvLight category -- EnvLights should be flagged as EnvLight by default.
