The best way of getting a DEM into Vue is to convert it into a 16 bit grey scale image and then bring it in as a procedural terrain using the function editor.

Bernie's way can work very well, but you shouldn't have a problem using the object import function. But DEM is a very generic name for many different file formats.

If you're on PC, I suggest you download 3DEM from here:

and load your dem in it. Then, you can export it to the usgs format that Vue will read.

Yes 3DEM is the best to convert DEM to Vue 6 :-)
