    Sorry if this maybe not for Unity Beta,
    But i just realize that baked occlusion from enlighten doesn't really occlude reflection and specular.
    is this behaviour in purpose? seems it kinda destroy the purpose of occlusion map

    It's not for the beta, no.

    The AO is baked onto the lightmaps themselves and is not separate. So it can't really occlude reflections and speculars (because then any shadow would occlude speculars/reflections).

    The intent is to help with getting better defined corner shadows (especially since enlighten is bad at creating those...)

    Dammit, unable to use baked occlusion as AO kinda sucks.
    alright since this is not for Beta Admin please move this thread into a proper place.
