Hi all,
This might a a dumb question so bare with me :D. Does embree support reflection and refraction? I tried to turn it on through the .mtl file but doesn't seem to work.
Thanks for the helps

Yes, Embree supports reflection and refraction, if you use XML+BIN to describe your scene (example: crown), or if you use the API directly. OBJ+MTL does not support reflection/refraction.
