HDRI environment - I don't want it to render


#1

Is there an easy way to load one into the Environment without actually being able to see it in your render?

I know you can add it to the environment map slot to each of your materials but don’t know if there’s a quicker way.


#2

Of course! Simply uncheck the checkbox from the right.


#3

really? In Max?

I thought the checkbox was to choose not to use the HDRI and just use a standard default background colour? I want it for reflections but not to render in the background.


#4

Save with an alpha channel, get rid fo the environment in post.

btw, naming the used app in first place would probably result in more helpfull replies.


#5

Yeah I forgot, I guess can ditch post, thanks.
