Visible Environment


The Visible Environment allows you to create a secondary environment which is only visible to the camera (backplate), reflections and refractions. The primary environment will still be used for lighting.


To create a Visible Environment:

  1. Add a second Modo Environment (Modo > Item > Create Environment).
  2. Set Environment Use to Visible Environment.



The following Environment Item settings control the Visible Environment:


Once a Visible Environment has been created, its settings can be accessed using the Render Toolbar > Visible Environment button.



NOTE: Environment Medium settings are ignored in the Visible Environment.
