unable to rotate imported heightfield terrain in 3D preview
« on: January 15, 2018, 06:18:04 AM »
I have made a few mountains in Worldmachine, exported heightfields and imported to Terragen. I cannot rotate the heightfield terrain, the button to rotate is greyed, disabled.
Any idea how I can rotate it?
Thank you

Unfortunately you can't rotate heightfields.
However if you go back to World Machine and export your terrain as a 16bit tiff you can then import it as an image (image map shader) and use a transform shader to rotate it.
