Real time environmental/scene reflection

I am looking to achieve real time environment/scene reflection on this particular object. But the issue is, since it uses PBR shader, it automatically creates a default environment from a texture. So can someone please freely edit my playground so that I get real time reflection on this shark (Skybox and also the mesh beside it on it?)

This is the image that gets reflected on the shark

You could use real time filtering with reflection probes for this: Reflection Probes | Babylon.js Documentation

Thank you, I shall try that. I have a doubt, for probes to work we must add objects to the list. Is there a way to keep it default? As in it takes in everything that is present in the scene?

    var probe = new BABYLON.ReflectionProbe("main", 512, scene);
    probe.renderList.push(sphere1);
    probe.renderList.push(skybox);
   //Instead I want:
    probe.renderList.push(everything);

You normally want to control manually what goes in but I guess if put renderlist to null it might render all.

Hi @sebavan, I tried to use probe.renderList = null; but it does not work. I thought it would render everything in the scene but that is not the case. It literally renders null.

@John.Kress

You can iterate all meshes on a scene and put them in probe.renderListscene.meshes.forEach(mesh => probe.renderList.push(mesh))

You might find my experiment snippet useful.

Be careful to remove the actual mesh using it from your list :slight_smile: or you will have an infinite loop
