Scene lit by a studio lighting HDR environment


The envmap environment uses a spherical image file for controlling the environment lighting. It uses equirectangular projection, where the horizontal axis is longitude and the vertical axis latitude.

The emission spectrum of the image white point (corresponding to RGB=1,1,1) is defined by a spectrum child element.

By default, the top of the image is oriented towards (0,0,1), and its center to (1,0,0). The envmap orientation can be adjusted by modifying the up and front parameters.
