Im tired so maybe I missed something. Using the Image World effects, im using it for the source of my radiosity, but ithe original image doesnt show up in the reflections. Did I miss a toggle, or is it expected I have to use an inverted sphere around my scene textured with the same image?

off the top of my head: check your surface settings to be sure they say Backdrop or Ray Tracing + Backdrop, rather than either o the options involving Spherical Image Map.

Other than that, I don't know what could result in a reflective surface not picking up the background.

Jester that was it. RayTracing + Backdrop has been wrongly toggled on some of my presets. Thanks.
