DEM questions
« on: October 17, 2018, 08:10:41 PM »
Hey there! Having some trouble with the import multiple DEM maps feature. Its very convenient to use the Georeference button as everything lines perfectly, but is there a way to have the maps line up at the scene origin? (top of the sphere). Or do I have to translate them manually? Since I'm also importing cameras from matchmove/maya cameras, they tend to be at the default scene origin.

Also, Is there a process of importing the proper satellite images to line up with the DEM height map? Curious if anyone has a workflow for this.

Thanks for any insight!

Use the Lat/Long At Apex setting in the Planet node to shift the 0,0 point of the planet to where your terrains are:

You can use the Geog Image Map shader to load georeferenced image data, it's available in the node-add dialogs, or on the Shaders layout from the Add Layer menu.
