HDRi Adjustment?

Hey all,

How does one adjust the scale (distance?) and height of the HDRi Sphere Map?

I have a car, and I have an HDRi background, setup in Sphere mode. Max 2012. But... When I go to render the car, the scale and height are always out of wack between the car and background. For instance, in one rendering, the gravel is up close, where in another, you dont see the ground at all, only the ocean background, no road that the car should be on.

Many thanks for any help and input on this.

Why don't you simple put an inverted sphere on to the scene (turn off: visible to camera), and make it's position whatever you like?
