HDRI Sky does not generate Reflections

Recommended Posts

I try to light a scene with an hdri image in a sky object.

I have a sphere with a chrome material in the scene and a sky object with a hdri applied to it in the luminance channel.

In the render settings GI is turned on.


In the viewport I can see the HDRI texture reflected in the sphere but in de final render the texture is not visible.


What am I missing here?

Try spherical projection on the tag.
