env map picture


(goneflyin) #1

I’ve been trying to add an env map to an object, say something like a sphere, and when I go to select the picture that I want to use I get an error message that says something about the picture being the wrong size.

Anyone have any info on this, or can someone ellaborate for me on what size of image to use?

thanks,
Chris

EnvMaps must be in a 3:2 ratio because they are actually
6 square images in two rows of 3 images each.

You can add an Image of any size you want as an Image and use it ‘like’ an EnvMap by pressing the Ref button in the texture settings anyway.

Or you can build your envMap with the 3:2 ratio
