Replacement for Environmental Map Viewer in Hitfilm Pro 2017

I have downloaded Hitfilm Pro 2017 just today, and I was trying to do some Star Wars scenes so I tried to find environmental map viewer in the effects panel, but it appears to not be there.  So what can I do in place of the environmental map viewer?

    Environmental Map Viewer was renamed to 360 Video Viewer, to more accurately reflect what the effect does.

    Can I suggest a text holder for any previously renamed effects, call it something like Renamed Tree.

    So when someone searches for an old effect (for people like me who are learning from old version tutorials) is will display something like this

    environmental map - 360 Video Viewer

    And a bonus would be that if one clicks this it takes you to the new effect.

    I couldn't find it either! I had to send an message asking what happened to the Environmental Map Effect and Axel was kind enough to reply personally with the answer. Then I got so use to using the 360 Video Viewer that when I went back to Express to do something, I couldn't remember what it was originally called! :) That's what happens when you get older I guess!

    I just came across this today. When applying the 360 viewer to my environment map. It doesn't appear to work the same. The image turns into a small box that seemingly cannot get any bigger

    Can you share a screenshot showing the problem? Make sure to select the object that has the effect, and expand the effect's details in the Controls tab.  Also, what version of HitFilm are you using?
