Custom Skybox for Unity with Photoshop

In the following video I create a custom skybox for Unity with Photoshop.

Basic Steps

  1. I create an equirectancular panorama file in Photoshop (6000 px x 3000 px) and save as a PNG.
  2. I use the Panorama to Cubemap tool offered at to convert the panorama into 6 cube maps.
  3. I import the textures into Unity and change them from Repeat to Clamp.
  4. I create a new material, change it  its Shader to Skybox > 6 sided and then attach my 6 cube maps accordingly.
  5. The last step is to apply the material to the Skybox material slot in Window > Rendering > Lighting Settings.
