Skybox

Skybox is a technique used to create a sphere with textures drawn around the scene or the camera. It helps to create an environment infinitely far away, such as a blue sky with white clouds or a dark sky with stars.

How to create a skybox

  1. To enable Skybox. Check the Display option in the Skybox tab under Properties panel. Skybox can be attached to the root node of a 3D scene and cameras.

  2. Assign six pictures (jpg, png) to the skybox, including Left, Right, Front, Back, Up and Bottom. Match the pictures to the direction they represent.

Note: Only when the 6 sides of the skybox are assigned with pictures, can the skybox display. The six pictures should be same in size, filename extension and coding format.
