  2. Set the Type attribute for the image plane to Texture.
  3. Click the texture button for the Texture attribute.

    The Create Render Node window appears.

  4. Select the texture you want to use as a background (for example, an Environment Texture).

    Maya creates the texture and connects it to the image plane.
