How do i make this visible?.

Every tutorial I see, it is automatic. But my scene is not mine, aparently they made it invisible, but I want to see how it is positioned and I need it to be displayed in the viewport with rendered option on.

    $\begingroup$ What is displayed instead of the background? Do you have transparent film enabled? Related: blender.stackexchange.com/q/14219/599 $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I can't post the file here, it's private content. I just render, and the environment texture set is not displayed when i render with Cycles. But the effects of it over the specular are visible. I just want to position the environment. In the examples I've seen in tutorials, it is available and can be seen $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ gandalf3, nothing is displayed. It's black. What is a transparent film? $\endgroup$

Go to Render Properties tab under Film and deselect Transparency, only works for Cycles.


You also need to turn on Use Nodes just under your image

Your environment is disabled.

Check your scene settings, "use environment".
