Member name Description
None No background defined - the color from Options is used to fill it.
Gradient Three-color simulated sky-horizon-ground combination. The sky is drawn in gradually changing color from the top (the "sky" color) to the bottom (the "horizon" color). The ground is either drawn in the single (the "ground") color, if the sky is visible, or in a gradient from the top (the "horizon") color to the bottom (the "ground") color.
Image User-specified image is drawn in the background either stretched vertically/horizontally/in both directions, or as is (pixel-to-pixel).
SunAndClouds Best approximation to the colors of the sky and the visible sun disk. The position of the visible sun disk is calculated based on the "sun and shadow settings" (see 'ViewBackgroundLighting' object).
