Hi

Couple of questions ?

1. Is there´s a way of creating a displacement map from a Vue terrain ?

2. Can i convert the displacement maps that come with Vue to another format like targa readable in Maya ?


I love this program !!!

Vue can read displacement maps created in other apps such as ZBrush, and apply them, but it doesn't create displacment maps, Vue can generate procedural displacement, based on all the tools available in the function editor.

To export the procedural displacement, you would have to export your terrain in a file type MAya can read, and choose to create texture maps for colour and displacement function. Targa is possible.
Bear in mind that procedurals and textures are 2 different things, and what Vue will do when exporting your terrain is "bake" the procedural function to a texture, which means that it may not be 100% identical.
