Question Environment textures?

How to create realistic environments (sky, sun clouds etc.) in Maya? ...suppose I'd have to use the env. textures like Env Sky.
I tried, but just couldn't figure 'em out ...Where can I find good tutorials covering that topic?

Maya used to but have not seen any other on the net. I had to play with the settings till I got it right.
What I do though is use a volume primative and apply the cloud texture then adjust the ripples etc in the atributs to show how far away it is, maybe 3-4 primatives depending on what you are trying to create.

Actualy here is an example of a sky backgound I did for a project of mine, all the clouds are volume primative spheres.
