Effects Shadows and reflection in the wather

How to get the reflection and the shadows of the bridge on the lake, adding real skies?
So it seems that the bridge has stuck on the lake and is very artificial.
Thanks for your help.
Best regards,
Severino.

Hi Severino, the most flexible solution is to import a large plane and assign a Water Material to it.

Then assign a Reflection Plane to the large plane via the Reflection Effect in Movie/Photo Mode.

And finally, adjust the Water Material settings to your liking after clicking on the FX button in Movie/Photo Mode.

Let us know if that answers your question.

Thank you very much Morten,
Assigning the reflection to the water plane, the results have fit a lot, but with the real skies activated they are not so good.
I HAVE NOTED THAT REFLECTIONS AND SHADOWS ARE MUCH BETTER IF THE REAL SKIES ARE DEACTIVATED, but on the other hand, the real skies create a more beautiful setting.
I hope that these differences can be solved for future updates.
Best regards.

Thanks for the reply.

A Planar Reflection will reflect the sky like a mirror so whatever the sky looks like will be reflected. In other words, it's up to you to pick a sky that you like.

Can you show us what it looks like, please?

Please also let us know which version of Lumion you're using.
