I would like to create a heightmap with an editor. I need two images as result:

  • Grayscale heightmap (24bit BMP or PNG if possible)
  • The texture

All the editors I've found, supports a special format, or the result is a 3D object (.obj or .dae or something else)

But all I need is just a heightmap, and the texture. I want to generate a mesh from the grayscale heightmap, and apply the texture on it.

  • What do you mean by "Just a heightmap"? Something like that does not exist. A height map must have a file format. Which file format would you like? Nov 20, 2015 at 12:14
  • What is "my program"? If we shall provide an answer that is compatible with your program, we should at least know the name of it. Nov 20, 2015 at 12:15

  • The heightmap is usually a grayscale texture where dark means low, white means high: i.imgur.com/lr8MfQW.jpg
