Does fluids ocean have reflection???

I think you have to enable it, maybe in the shader, and also in the render dialog (raytracing)

Can you tell me what you changed to get reflections. I tried the shader, mesh and render settings but still can't make it work. Help....

Actualy I haven't changed anything. They were here but could see them beacuse of the camera angle and size of teh reflected object.

You can test it by changing camera angle with larger object. Also in render globals make sure that raytracing is on.
If that doesn't work I can send you small scene with settings (maya7)?

Err, just tried it again and it works. I was using a preset ocean example without lighting the object properly!!! thanx (hmmm... sleep...)
