EnvironmentBakingCamera is LightWave v9.x+ specialized camera for creating environment maps that can be used by Textured Environment or applied to sphere with spherical UV mapping.

It's essential tool for people running out of time, due to tight deadline. Render time can be optimized by placing EnvironmentBakingCamera in couple positions, rendering environment maps, and using them instead of relying on slow ray-tracing gaining precious time. Especially with blurred reflections, or blurred refractions, difference will be not noticeable.

It also helps transferring scene to other 3D application, or 3D game engine, which cannot understand LightWave environment plugin handlers generating sky, clouds and other atmospheric effects.
