3dPdf Rhino Environment map

Post by matthiasmohs » Tue Nov 24, 2015 3:21 pm


I have seen the last posts about environment mapping:

actually the environment map from rhino ist not exported as an environment map also if i map a full sphere map.
It looks a litte like a sphere mapping that is not really fixed on the sphere.

Is there any solution for this problem?
This is very importand for Rhino users that are used to auxpecker environments

Best regards

The mapping for the environment map in Rhino is different than the environment map in SimLab plguni, we try to get the best match which usually works well for environments used to show metal reflection for example, but not for reflecting an image.

If you want a great image reflection you can try texture baking for Rhino.
