I was wondering if anyone could shead some light on what I am doing wrong here. My image is inserted into a sIBL sceen from HDRLABS but it appears that only half of my chrome sphere is rendering or reflecting right. Does anyone know what would cause this?

Im kinda of new to Vray ... but if you are using the Vray Light Dome make sure that you check the Dome Spherical box .... wild guess

also check in the plane's Shape settings that appear in reflection is on. If you imported an OBJ file, that's off by default (dumb bug as old as time)

So I checked my Vray light dome and "Dome Spherical" was checked.

I also checked my ground plane and "appear in reflection" was also checked.

Any other ideas what might be causing this?

ive tried rendering a couple different shapes and it seems like its cutting out or not rendering the chrome in all the shadow areas.

You want your ground plane's reflections to be UNchecked. Otherwise you'll have an expanse of ground plane reflecting up at the lower half of your sphere.

And a grey ground plane is what your sphere looks to be reflecting on the bottom there.
