I am trying to use an HDR image as a background plate for a render.
I have created a mental ray environment IBL. The background is visible in the view port
and when I do a single frame render.

I have put the mental ray ibl node into its own layer along with the default light set

However when I attempt to batch render this layer the HDR image is not visible.

any ideas?

Do you need the HDR to LIGHT your scene, or just use it as a background?

if you need it for both you could add a big sphere or a plane, depending of how much camera move you have, and texture that with that image, I suggest you do this on a separate layer, that way you have more control of composition, if not just trow a render like that.
