I have to experiment a bit again, apparently  ;) Maybe vdisp works with a stack of cubes anyway.....

Hmm so is the VDM camera projected?

I'm thinking the basic work flow is to create a rough shape in C4D (I guess any 3d modelling program would work) and import that into Houdini where you create a normal map and then do the weird magic of flattening and "loosening" the object with the normal map attached.

The VDM is then imported into Terragen and ... well that bit don't make any sense to me since I've tried using VDM's in Terragen with no success.

I don't see how the map can store information to displace laterally at a certain height.

Scratch that I have no clue lol

Are you using the PLE version of Houdini?

Great work I say again :D

The most important work i do in cinema 4d... Than i export it to Houdini and create magical VDM, not normal map, it's the other story  ;)  Than i import to Terragen and do terrain magic !  ;D ;)

That's the most helpful thread about vector displacement!! You can read and understand how to do such a things!!  ::) :o ;)

This is hilarious (Referring to Dune and Artice-3d Secrets)!

I suppose after the Cliff Challenge is done we will find out more.  ;) 

Eagerly awaiting...

These are great.
I wish I could figure out how you do these. Are you still using Houdini for Vector displacement maps?
