I'd like to use the inside of the sphere as the background image. Is there any way to do that?

  • $\begingroup$ Oh my. I've mistaken. I mean inside the SPHERE. I'd like to use the insides of sphere as space image, so that the objects could be shown like floating around the universe. But I can't see the rendered image. $\endgroup$ – Kevin Kim Mar 20 '16 at 17:29
  • $\begingroup$ Ok, now it's more clear... but I still don't get what the problem is. I see a camera already inside the sphere. Did you unwrap the sphere, assigned a material, etc..? $\endgroup$ – Carlo Mar 20 '16 at 17:33

Try flipping all the normals toward the inside of the sphere. Then what ever space scene you map to it can be seen from inside it.
