How to set realistic background for render in 1 minute

Use backdrop plane from D5 Asset Library to set the environment for archviz in 1 minute.

For architectural visualization, environment setting is critical because it directly tells your audiences the story of the architecture. It includes sky, weather, surrounding landscape, backdrop context and many other elements. How they interact can greatly impact the realism and quality of the final render. For example, the glass facade usually reflects the surroundings. You don't need to spend hours placing buildings around to have such a beautiful reflection. All you need is a backdrop plane from D5 Asset Library.
