I’m doing a tutorial here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Knur_xQ6yy8 He uses an hdr for the “fake” reflection on the text. He chooses the “shading to straight alpha” in the render panel. I don’t have that option in my version of Blender (2.68A) So the hdr image shows when I render. Does anyone know how I can get the hdr image not to appear in the background (but still create the “fake reflections” on the text) as he does in the tutorial. In Cycles, I think there’s an option to select transparent for the background. But this tutorial is not using Cycles.
