Trouble with environment/background
show user profile  antoin_currie
Hi all,

Having an issue where I can't get my background to display in my render.
I've been able to do it before, can't remember if I done it in a previous version of Max though.
I'm using 2015 SP2 at the minute.
I'm just re-going over a tutorial I found online and just want my environment/background switcher to render out in mental ray. But for some reason all I get is a black background. Can't find anything on google to point me in the right direction, so hope someone here can help.
Here is my environment setup:-
And here is my result:-

Can't figure out why I'm just getting a black background, used to be able to do this with the same method, is there another way I can get the environment/background switcher to appear, am I missing a checkbox somewhere or does 2015 make you do it a different way?

Never mind, I had to set the Bitmap co-ordinates to 'environment' and 'screen' in the material editor.
