quick question...where's the plugins for max/lw.....i surpose they don't install with a 'typical install' also is there a download area for the max 9 plugin?

Are you talking about the vuesynch plugin...if so, its on the disk (or it should be) theres a few, one for LW and Max etc. You add the plugin to LW as you do others. Have you checked if your eligable for the vue 6 upgrade.


Heres another link to the same tute, BUT in quicktime format...better quality.

here's a quick question for vue users...i have in the past used bryce and that has a render altitude capability..can vue do this?

mainly as i'm putting together a scene with various terrain meshes...with bryce you could render the altitude and this woudl render a heightmap from the whole scene looking down...you can then apply this to 1 terrain so replacing all the previous collection of terrains that made up the scene...

Hi Cresshead,

I too like that workflow: layout a bunch of terrains for general hill placement, then
render an overall height map and assign to a much larger terrain. I'm just learning vue
myself, and haven't seen an obvious way to do this. perhaps someone has written a python
script? if not, when I have time, I will tackle this and post it.

Nice start, I like it. I would suggest using yet another terrain instead of flat surface (infinite plane?) in foreground, to give it lil' more variety...

Vue has distance map, you just need to set up your camera to a proper position above.
It can save this image as 16bit (i think) tiff format but I never tried it to load such a thing as terrain map. Let me know if it works. Cheers :)
