Reflection probes in Unity

This exercise demonstrates a technic that is used for creating nearly realistic reflections in Unity known as reflection probes.

The technique of probes is a cheap trick that is perfectly suited for mobile games or low config targets as they address the purpose without exhausting resources.

Let us explore the implementation.

  • The configuration is pretty simple. There is a plane with a material whose shininess is set to full throttle.
  • There is a cube as well who has another material applied on it without any modification.
  • Go to the lighting menu and add a reflection probe.
  • Adjust its width as per the need by the edit option.
  • Generate the light.

Pretty quick and a easy implementation.

Thank you very much
