Importing Importing background image


New member

Is there a way to import/use a background photograph so that it doesn't interrupt the sun (e.g. shadows)?
I've removed the sky - so basically the image is a 2D filler to add detail to the rest of my scene.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Hi mroent, yes - if you import your background plane with different materials on each side (for example from SketchUp).

Then assign an Invisible Material to the side that's facing the sun and the material with your background texture to the side that's facing the camera.

This will make the sun light pass through the back of the plane.
