Hi to all,

I am trying to use the input file feature to get external heightmap into WM, but i don't fint an exporter to succeed.

I find i can only import terragen file, TGA and RAW32,but
1) terragen file get a strange layer which  doent exist in the original file.

2) i have not succeed to get a valid TGA file how ever i export TGA file.

3) i don't find an exporter for r32 file.

is there a easy way to import heightmap in WM?


Sorry I am Noob,

I just understand why i get a strange layer in WM, it is because i get the Height + Shade Option :D so i was seeing the shade, that i havent when i see it in viewer programm.

So Ter file are Ok.

For TGA files they have to be 24 or 32 bit files but RGB ones it seems.
I tryed to use greyscale file in Photoshop in 8 or 16bits but they seems to be not valid as import in WM.

So now i don't have to use r32.

Sorry for disturbing
