In this webinar learn about how a height map generated in software such as Photoshop or GIMP can create a custom 3D landscape or cityscape in PDHowler.
Usually the brighter pixels of a height map make higher elevations, and the darker pixels make lower elevations. Here’s an example:-
So let’s get imaginative with height maps to quickly create 3D custom landscapes or cities. Imagine trying to create a city metropolis one building at a time or a canyon network from the ground up. Height maps can provide a fast and fun way to create large scale 3D scenes.
Learn how to create:-
- Mountain ranges
- Lunar craters
- Hurricane storm systems
- Galactic nebula
Philip Staiger shows you how to do a variety of height map projects with PD Howler.
