Rotate Spherical Background?

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to rotate an spherical background other than rotating everything on the plan? What determines the horizontal orientation in chief?

That was a lot of content to get through with many rabbit holes to jump into... I can see that the topic of background orientation is not a new one, but there also do not seem to be any great work around options currently either. I will reiterate that one should not have to rotate an entire plan to accommodate a background image, spherical or 360.  It would seem to be a simple ask to unlock the orientation of any given backdrop and rotate it vs everything, hopefully this can be addressed in a future update. Until then I'll try editing the background slice to be where i need it and see if that works for a spherical image.

Yes unfortunately these are all workarounds for a tool that was never finished.  You may be able to get one of the methods that others have used to work for you in a specific situation but they rarely work in all situations.  If you have time now that you are up to date on the topic you could post a summary in suggestions so that chief can improve their software.

I bumped up a post by Rene Rabbit from a few versions ago for enhancements for PBR and it did have some background rotational items on the list. I might add my own specifically focusing on the background orientation. Seems like it would be a simple thing to incorporate.
