When I try to bake a sky mapped to a sphere, no geometry is created; but the other mappings seem to work.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks.

TyVole,

See the "Skydome... or cube?" post in this forum.
When you bake a spherical map using Skytracer, it'll automatically become a backdrop. Render a frame to see it.
You can find it at the bottom of the Backdrop tab, in the Environment section.
Just remember to crank the resolution way up, the default of 512 is pretty small, especially if you are rendering at the standard 640x480.
