I'm trying to learn how to implement HDRi images into my background to improve render quality, and such. Here is the issue I'm having.
I was wondering if anyone knew whether the black hole in the image was the result of poor image quality or if I am doing something wrong in the settings. Here's how I have it set right now. Am I doing it right?
Obviously I could just change the camera angle and hide that ugly thing, but if it's something I can fix, I'd like to learn how. Thanks in advance for any help you provide!
P.S. is there a way to get nice shadows with HDRi images, or do I have to set up lights to do something like that?
