Overview

 

Partially diffuses an environment map so that when it is reflected off a surface it will create the impression of a material that partially scatters light.

 

 

Scatter Environment Sample

Left: When reflected off a surface an environment map will usually produce sharp metallic reflections.

Right: The Scatter Environment node can make an environment map semi-diffuse with subtle reflections.

 

 

 

Inputs

 

This node's only input provides the original environment map that is to have a light scattering effect applied to it.  The input must be in latitude/longitude format.  The Make Environment node will produce environment maps in this format.
