    How do you load your own environments though?

    I'm also wondering how to change the environment with my own panoramas. How do you do that? Is it possible?

    Hi @James

    Could you please update this lighting help page to explain how the environnement is casting shadows ?

    It seams that the shadows are casted from an arbitrary directional light not in relation with the HDRI map content.

    See in the exemple below where there is not directional highligt in the map but still a spot light is generating light and shadows from one direction.

    Hi Fred,

    I believe the shadows are cast by a point of the highest brightness in the HDR image. Looking at that model, your environment is more or less uniform, so the highlight/shadow seems arbitrary.

    If you look at other environments in the list, you can see the brightest point is marked in the thumbnail.
