Help on rendering mental ray physical sky

Hello!

I have a problem. Could someone explain on how to render mental ray physical sky? Every time I batch render a scene, the physical sky doesn't appear? Thoughts?

unless you have ticked "use background" on the sun/sky node your "sky" is actually most likely still there.

but you get an alpha channel in your image that cuts out the sky part...
you just need to turn off the alpha channel in what every program you are viewing the image...

for example in after effects change the alpha to ignore and you will see the "sky"

Thanks, but.... Does anyone know how to do that in Adobe Premiere? Also, does it matter of what file format I save it in?

Ahh, I just figured it out. I was saving in png format instead of tff. Thanks for your help!
