The title says it all. I know that you can turn off reflections and refractions on sky and it effects the entire scene but you cant target a single object to not be effected by the sky like you can the sun. Whats the best method to exclude a single object from the skys reflection?

 I could render the object in a separate scene and overlay but id be doing about 200 product images and want to avoid extra photoshop editing if possible. any suggestions?

I can't speak for the devs, but I'm guessing they will say Corona is a real-world render engine. What you want to do is be not realistic.

Now you mention the trick about rendering a separate pass. If you know how to use the Take System, you can set up one take for the main render and a second take for just the single object. Yes you still have to composite them later, but you can at least render them with one click.

Thats what I ended up doing. Was aware of this feature but it will definitely be used a lot now! Thank you!

Oh yeah, let me look that up in the manual. Oh wait, we STILL don't have a proper manual and we're on v7.
