background

NOTE: This version of the documentation tracks unstable development happening on A-Frame’s master branch. If you wish to try it out, grab the unstable build. Otherwise, head to the documentation for the current 0.7.0 version

The background component defines the background of a scene. It is more performant than a-sky since geometry is not created. There are no undesired frustum culling issues when a-sky is further than the far plane of the camera. There are no unexpected oclussions either with far objects that might be behind of the sphere geometry of a-sky.

Example

The example below sets the background color to red.

<a-scene background="color: red"></a-scene>

Properties

Given the fog distribution type, different properties will apply.

Property Description Default Value
color Color of the scene background. black
transparent Background is transparent. The color property is ignored. false
