Exclamation Howd you use a video as a backdrop?? Please help

Hi guys, im using vue 5 infinite. I used the video clip as an enviromental map, this was good as the lighting and reflections were automaticaly calculated. However the video is bent round, as if it is a cylinder and you are in the middle of it (camera view). I have also tried creating a plane but the sun interacts with the clip and if i place an object (e.g car) in the scene a shadow is created. Is there any way of combining the automatic lighting, reflection etc of the enviroment map with the clip filling the scene. Simply put I need the backdrop as the file. Please help and thank you

Use an Alpha Plane. In the material editor upper right hand corner their will be two check boxes. Turn off both cast and receive shadows.
