Render with HDRI lighting but without HDRI image

I have a .hdr image as world color enviroment texture
When it renders you can see the lighting as you should and the image of the hdr
I want the lighting but not the image to show in my render.

Thanks

Hi, switch off Camera in World > Ray Visibility.
Reflections still exists, no idea if it is possible to switch it off too.

Cheers, mib

Render tab - Film - Transparent maybe?

Go into World node tree, add another Background node, MixShader node and mix two Backgrounds using LightPath - IsCameraRay.
One Background will light Scene while other will be visible in render.

Here is a more advanced world setup I use that lets you split off the reflections as well :wink:
