grab terrain with Context

Fri 2 Feb 2018 17:55

The context grab is a great feature, but it is of very limited use when the context is on sloping terrain. It would be good to be able to bring in context with at least an approximation of the actual slopes of the terrain. I generally model the immediate site area of my project with terrain elevations as accurate as I can get. But when grabbing context, the context ends up all at z=0, which does not relate properly to my site.

Grabing terrain would be awesome. When You try to make real terrain, there numerous ways. But as far as know and what I have found on the internet, all of them are rather complicated (finding DEM images, use as displacements in 3D modeling software, make a mesh,, reduce polygon count,...or similar ways)...if You could implement it to Your context grab function, that would certainly be a huge advance before competitors software...
