Heightfields

Recommended Posts

Hey there!

Okay so I have got a grasp of how a heightfield works but what I am trying to do is confusing me. 

I have the sole of a shoe and on one surface I want it to have the heightfield on. How do I merge the heightfield with the surface? I have used the project node but I still get the square. 

I also used attributes from volume and then a point wrangle to transfer the height to the Y position but It affects the whole of the geo. 

I need help!

Hi Andrew,

Could you repost your hip file, with a stash sop after your file node (and stash input before saving of course), or just freezing your file node so that we can understand what you are doing ?

Without the geo, it is hard to help you...

Hey, thanks for the advice,

I have attached a new file to look at. 

If I convert the heightfield to a VDB it makes it a cube and ruins what I am trying to do I need to mesh the heightfield with my existing geo. 

Thanks

Hey,

Not sure I understood completely what you wanted to achieve, so here is a file with my interpretation :-)

It would probably requires the mountain to fade around the border of the sole to have a better integration.

I have used Boolean to achieve this. I let you play with it.

Hope this helps

Hi!,

 

Thanks both for your reply. I will have a look at them now and have a play. I will let you know how I get on. 

 

Cheers
