Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with infinite planes, part of Up and Running in VUE.
- In this sample scene provided by E-on Software,…all of the terrain objects are identical copies.…They're instances.…They've just been positioned, rotated,…and scaled slightly differently.…Additionally, they've all been cropped…by the ground plane.…In the Top view, it's clear that this terrain object…has a ragged edge, or border,…and these ones are perfectly square.…This is happening because there are…different elevations above the ground plane.…Anything that's below the ground plane…is going to get cropped off.…
Right now the ground plane is hidden,…and that actually makes it a little bit easier…for us to see this process.…I can select an object over here,…and then move it up and down.…And as it moves up and down,…you can see it getting cropped.…Very cool.…And we can control this,…not just by moving the objects,…but also by moving the ground plane itself.…And again, right now it's hidden, so let's un-hide it.…Go into the World Browser and click on the button…on the far right until you get a little eyeball,…and then select the Ground plane.…
