Equirect background seems pixilated

Hi everyone!

I have been using the editor a while now and even after the latest updates for the equirect background I still see that no matter the quality of .hdr file I upload it comes in looking very pixilated/blurry. Is this a bug?

I am attaching the file and the screenshot from the editor.

Your HDR is 1024px tall. When you wrap it around the scene, it gets stretched out even further because the perspective camera only uses a small area of that image to fill up the whole canvas height. This happens even in the official examples. A simple trick would be to blur it, so it looks like it’s out-of-focus.

what @marquizzo said: you need at least 6x2K cubemap to look sharp at 1920 pixels screen
