Hiya blenderheads,

How do i switch off the horizon view of my hdr angular map,
while still keeping it’s aspects on my model ?

i want to remove the image showing in the background on the horizon…


In the render option, turn on TGA or PNG for output format. Then turn on PREMUL and also the RGBA button. This renders with an ALPHA background.

You can then add a BG colour in GIMP or PS.
