Mesh transparent when rendering with environment background.
show user profile  FX
Can't seem to fix this, I've loaded my image in the viewport, matching the render output, aligned the scene...dropped the same image in the Environment background and set the bitmap co-ordinates to environment and screen.

Basically this...

The solution suggested there is to set the bitmap properties mapping to spherical, which fixes the see through issue but fucks up the environment (obviously).

...any suggestions ?

Does the object have reflection (raytraced, etc?) If so, use a separate reflection map.

Nope, bog standard reflection, I've tried 2-sided , mtlwrapper etc, all have the same result.

I think I've tried every configuration known to man, as long as bitmap co-ordinates are set to screen...and they need to be for the viewport background to render correctly, meshes render semi transparent.

It has me befuddled....I'm just going to comp it in post :/

edit: All I know it has something to do with GI / LC, when I turn off GI it renders correctly.
