Reflections disappear during playback

I am following the tutorial here to create extrusion text among other tips

I am getting along with this ok except that my reflections only show in the viewer when its not playing.

When I start to play the 10s clip the reflections disappear. No matter what frame I stop on the reflections appear. When I hit play they disappear.

I don't think is from me having any rogue keyframes.

Why are my reflections disappearing during play?

Using v2021.1

    At the bottom right of the Viewer Panel is a drop-down menu for Quality settings and Viewer Resolution.

    Set your Playback Quality to Final.

    @negativezero000 Try clicking the drop down in the bottom right corner of the viewer that says “Full”. Go to Playback Quality and select Final. The other options turn off certain effects during playback that are usually heavy on resources (like a reflection), but your project should export fine regardless of what that is set to.
