Plop plop!

I would to know if someone has a good reference or quick explanation about rendering an environment map in Maya...

I checked the Polycount-Wiki in the cube map section but there is no line about it :(

- http://wiki.polycount.com/CubeMap?action=show&redirect=Cube+Map

The Maya documentation doesn't have a chapter about it :

- http://download.autodesk.com/us/maya/2009help/index.html

Youtube same :

- http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=environment+map+maya&suggested_categories=1%2C20&page=1

I finally found this tutorial :

- http://www.creativecrash.com/maya/tutorials/rendering-lighting/general/c/create-your-own-hdr-environment-map-in-maya-mental

But I do not success to make it work with a new scene or from the scene example =_=.

Maybe I do not do the right research but what I am trying to do is to bake a 3D environment on a sphere (or cube), creating a skybox of my 3D level ^_^/


(And if I success to find a solution I will provide tutorial page for the polycount wiki about it!!)
