How do you use an HDRI Vectorworks 2018

Recommended Posts



I was wondering how to use an HDRI Correctly in Vectorworks 2018, 

When I use them as a scene background using the panoramic as described it just creates a blurry looking background. 

I switched to vectoworks from 3dsmax about a year ago for work, and i'm used to just placing the file into the environmental background slot. 

How do you apply your HDR so it makes a seamless clear background instead of looking out of scale and blurry?

Is there anyway to get them to scale? 


I know it has the potential to be a clear file, when I put it into someone else's file for just backgrounds and HDRI's it works fine It also is clear and perfect in Artlantis.


This is how it looks in my file. 1186991567_ScreenShot2018-08-01at8_35_55AM.thumb.png.2c8072808e236c2b2fee96e21073cf8d.png

I think it looks fuzzy in wireframe or OpenGL but once you do a higher rendering they look decent. I'll double check.
