RT options overview
Reflections enables realistic reflections. This means you will be able to see things in reflections that would be behind the camera view. eg. Looking into a puddle and seeing the roof in high detail. Or behind you in a reflective wall.
Screen percent is the percentage of the screen that reflections will be traced at. You will get a lower resolution reflection the lower the %. Around 80% is a good balance of quality / performance.
Ray Traced shadows will enable shadow casting on enemies, and more accurate shadows from dynamic lights.
This adjusts the maximum amount of ray casting lights projecting shadows. Around 12 is a good balance of quality / performance.
This will boost existing dynamic lights on decorations in the level (torches, spotlights etc). This comes at a performance cost.
This will increase the threshold that reflections will be shown on materials. This comes at a performance cost.
Experiment with all of these options to find the best performance and visual gain for your system.
