Rookie here. I have a little bit of experience with Google Sketchup and 3d printing and I have used adobe photoshop quite a lot. Totally new to blender though. I am wanting to do a project where I have a character doing some basic movements. I have figured out how to import character with rigging and movements. I am just wondering about the background (setting?). Is there anywhere that I can access a bank of background choices? Like a stadium, or stage or living room, workout room etc....
I'm actually having a difficult time even posting this question since I don't know how to properly tag it. I am likely referring to the background incorrectly. Thanks for any tips!

  • $\begingroup$ Hello :). Perhaps HDRI is the term you're looking for :). They're not shipped with Blender, but are very easy to add. $\endgroup$ – Jachym Michal Apr 25 at 14:09

    $\begingroup$ Hi there - another possible approach is to render your image with a transparent background (Render Properties->Film->Transparent) and then in the compositor you can mix in any image as the background. Many example on this e.g. blender.stackexchange.com/questions/5802/… $\endgroup$ – Justin Leppan Apr 26 at 1:53

Thank you to both of you for your kind responses. I have learned quite a bit over the past few weeks. What I was looking to do was simply create a floor and a wall where I could have a character doing stationary movements. The easiest thing to do was two planes and add textrues. For fun I purchased my son minecraft for windows and he made me a floor and wall and we were able to export and then import into blender. Very cool! Thank you again for the tips. I will use the HDRI in future for more complex projects and the background images are also a great suggestion.
