Learn about swapping environment maps for better reflections.
- [Instructor] In this image,…we've got a shiny globe on our table.…And because it's made of metal,…it reflects the environment that it's in.…The problem we've got here is that…it reflects the view that's behind it.…Because by default, it will reflect the current environment.…We can change that.…In the environment light setting, click on the thumbnail.…This shows you how it's doubled it up,…so that it can rotate around your object.…
But we can change it for a different file.…Let's select a file by clicking the icon.…And now we can choose this lively reflection image,…which is a view of the same room…taken from the other direction.…There it is in the scene.…It's clearly the same room,…but it's a different view of that scene.…Let's put our preview away.…And we can move it around by dragging the rotation slider…until we get it into a position…that looks good for this environment.…
There's no facility here to enlarge…or reduce that reflection.…So if you want a different crop,…then you have to open the image in Photoshop,…
