Has anyone managed to export skybox from Vue 5 Infinitive or Vue 5 Esprit into B3D.
It exports the cube mesh and also the sky texture, but I just can't figure out how to get it working. Normal way does not work like in code below:

World=LoadMesh( "World.3ds")
PositionEntity World,0,0,0
EntityTexture World,Sky

Vue 5 would feel good tool for this purpose I think.
Any hints how to do it?

I've used Vue 5 Easel, although have not tried rendering a skybox from it. Couldn't you simply render the 6 views each to a square sized image, ensuring that the camera field of view is appropriate and use the skybox code that is in the samples that come with blitz3d (one of birdie's demo has one, as does the castle demo from memory).

Yes, this would be one way. I'm just a bit lazy, so I'd like to make it more or less automatically :=)
