Annoying background image that shows up as a reflection during rendering in catia V5.

After I have made a 3D Catia model and applied the materials how do I switch of the annoying background image that automatically shows up as a reflection.
It is a building with vans parked outside and it ruins any attempt to render a model.

Is there an option switch, I have searched everwhere but have not found anything.

Dont use CATIA for rendering, the renders are not realy good. Use some other softwares, I use KeyShot. It is good and easy to use.

The way to switch of the annoying hiden reflection in the material is as follows.
1. Open the Real Time Rendering
2. Click on the Change Reflection Image (looks a bit like a zen circle)
3. Change image or set to default.

Thanks guys for your suggestions they made me think outside of the box.

Yes I am afraid it is.
That was a super tip and I have set the background behind the model at default.
But, the "reflection is still there in any metallic shiny surface. It does not matter which material I assign to the model its always there on the model itself.
Have you any more tips ?, they are all gratefully received.
