  1. Handling Massive Height Fields

    I created a heightfield from a depth map source that I downloaded. The chunk of terrain to get the detail I want is 8129 x 8129. It takes 30 minutes to open this file even though I have the erosion frozen and cached to disk. Then when I get it open finaly, and I make any change to it like a mask adjustment, it takes 15 minutes to calculate. Its just super unwieldy. Is there a better way to cache this out so its faster to load and work with? Is 8K height map size too big? Is there a way to use PDG to speed things up? Just looking for a way to do this without losing my mind. thanks all!
