    Skyboxes

    Skyboxes are a way to add a background to your scene. They are a cube with a texture on each face, and the camera is always at the center of the cube. This creates the illusion of a background that is infinitely far away.

    Importance

    Skyboxes are essential for creating immersive environments. They provide a backdrop for your scene and can set the mood and atmosphere. Skyboxes can be used to create realistic outdoor environments, space scenes, and more.

    Benefits of Skyboxes

    • Immersive Environments: Enhance realism and immersion.
    • Atmospheric Effects: Create diverse lighting and weather effects.
    • Performance Optimization: Optimize scene performance.
    • Easy Integration: Effortlessly add to your scene.
