I need to render a cubemap from a Blender scene.

Is this the correct way to do it?:

Set camera FOV to 90. Have one camera facing up, one down, left, right, front , back. Is that all to achieve a proper seamless cubemap?

If not, how then?


Regardless of which render engine you use, the process is the same.

It has been explained well here.

Personally I find rendering a single-image equirectangular environment map to be easier, but I understand you may have specific reasons for needing a cube map.
