Environment Material

The environment material is generally applied to a hemisphere modeled about your object. The HDRI environment will be visible on this hemisphere. Your object will be integrated in this environment, the advantage of this method being that the environment changes interactively when you are zoom and pan around the scene.

After you have applied this material to your hemisphere, it is often useful to edit your environment and to change its altitude. You will thus obtain a better sense of scale and realism.
