Layers not showing up when importing digital asset for terrain Jan. 25, 2018, 3:07 p.m.

Hi Simon,

So even with the timeshift set to 20, the layers were not showing up?
You shouldn't have to nuke other layers to have other show up… was there any errors/warning in the logs?

Would you be able to send us your hda so I can have a look?

I'll try it again with another landscape to make sure I wasn't mucking something up as I'm new to this process.

My thought was that somehow one of the layers was empty or incompatible even though my time shift was properly set to a later frame. Either way it's working now.

I've got a terrain hda properly importing but I'm having trouble aligning the feature maps I've saved out as separate images. The terrain is the suggested resolution of 4033x4033. What is the proper method for scaling and/or rotating the landscape coords?

It would be cool to expand the docs a little with proper step by step best practices.

edit: looks like you need to make sure the resolution matches those odd ones given in the docs and the textures need to be rotated 90 degrees in the landscape coordinate node. I may try transforming the landscape in the HDA 90 deg instead to see if that preps it properly, not sure if landscape coords in Houdini are world or local.

I've been having the same issue here. The landscape is being generated but without any sign of the extra layers, debris in my case. I see no sign of the layers when the landscape painting tool is activated, I have a layer blend node with ‘debris’ as the name of the weight to use but there's no effect from it.

It feels like the extra layers aren't being imported at all. I have a time shift set to frame 20.

edit: okay I deleted a bunch of the extra layers that I wasn't using and this time around it looks like the import worked and I'm seeing water and debris after nuking flow maps, mesa and cliff that were hanging around from previous operations. It looks terrible due to low resolution and I'll probably end up baking out the various layers anyway but at least I got it working :-)
