Hey guys is there a way to position a 360 hdr so that a particular part is reflected in a model or is it a case of you get what your given. I'm working alot with model reflections and sometimes would like a particular reflection in a windscreen for example. 

Cheers

    Can you give us some context for your setup? What sort of layer is the environment map being reflected onto, and which effect are you using to link the environment map to that layer?

    Hi Axel, so lets say i had a 3d model of a car and imported a 3d hdr of let's say a desert with a single tree in it. I use the 360 hdr as the environment map and once it's reflected in the car i car cannot seem to be able to rotate or adjust the positioning so for example the tree is reflected in a particular panel of the the car  (front and centre in the windshield/ windscreen)

    Thanks

    Update: i have seemed to find a (bit of a drag) way to do it which is to parent the camera to the car. Rotate the car until the detail of the Hdr is displayed where you want and then unparent the camera. Would be nice to just spin the hdr though. ?

     @EVOAH Any way you can parent the HDR layer to a point and rotate the point instead?

    No, just tried. Thanks for the suggestion though.
