Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting and importing heightfield maps, part of Up and Running in VUE.
- Here's the randomly generated terrain…we created in the previous movie.…It's got a height field resolution of 1024 by 1024…and it's got about two million triangles in it…as shown in this readout here.…And it looked pretty good in the Terrain Editor…if you recall, but here in the main camera view…in the other viewports,…it looks kind of soft and mushy,…but that's just because the OpenGL preview…has been throttled.…Basically, it's a simplified version of the mesh.…
If we actually do a test render of this,…it'll look a lot better.…And this is the first time we've done…a test render in this course.…If we give focus to the main camera view,…we can click on the little camera icon here…with the left mouse button…and that'll do a quick render in that viewport.…And it looks pretty good there.…We get a dialog that pops up here…saying gamma is enabled,…and when we click that OK button,…we also get a post-render option's dialog.…
I'm going to disable this.…We're going to take a look at this later in the course,…but just so that we're not bothered…
