But if i set it as a backdrop it doesnt come out wel as. as you can see the plaes look as though they are angled upwards..they arent actully supposed to be..what i want to do is try and set the background image onto the ground..but i have no idea how..:confused: soo any help woold be awsume.

Have you tried creating a simple ground plane [1 4-point poly] and mapping it to it, then, positioning the camera properly and then puting your planes over it?
