Hi Hedgehog,

Whether translucent materials get affected or not, depends whether they’re done in the main or the separate translucency pass. There’s a project setting for that:

So, in order to fix this, you either change your project settings (might cause knock on issues on other assets) or you uncheck this flag in each translucent material you’d like to be affected by refraction:

Here’s an example of a translucent material being affected:

Hope that helps!
