Method #

This node generates an environment image from a HDR/EXR image for a Skylight, or other lighting nodes.

The output from this node is an image texture which has been specifically prepared for lighting other nodes, but you can add some extra tweaks to it with Post FX nodes.

The output from this node is an image texture which has been specifically prepared for use with lighting nodes, but Post FX nodes aren’t supported directly. You’ll need to connect them to a video node, which can then be connected to the “Envmap Image” input.

Parameters

{message-information-attributes

ParameterDetails
Envmap ImageImage used to generate the environment from.
Image Source MappingSelect which mapping type was used in the image.
  • Dual Paraboloid : Use 2 paraboloids to generate a cube map.
  • Spherical : Uses Spherical Mapping which corrects for pole artefacts.
  • Equirectangular (VR 360) : Uses equirectangular mapping, common for HDRi textures.
ResolutionResolution of the generated environment image. Higher resolutions can impact performance a lot.
Max Input BrightnessMaximum brightness from an image that can be used. Usually useful with HDR images.
