That's not a native tool, it's a Macro.

There's information on it here on @Midgardsormr's excellent blog: http://www.bryanray.name/wordpress/blac ... flections/

Just search for 'probe' on the page...

Gotcha :)

Note that the functionality of that entire Macro has been superseded by the more recent Spherical Camera (3SC) node. That should make your life a lot easier...

Maybe some clever one should build a screen space reflection fuse.
Would make such things easier and probably it would be good enough for 90% of all use cases
