hello all, Could someone tell me how to create a height map? (eg height map from a bitmap file "earth" like BumpEarth sample in SDK). Should I use photoshop to paint every area ? Thanks a lots, Khanh

Don''t know about photoshop, I use paint shop pro. Maybe illustrator is a better package for just making art, photoshop is more for manipulating existing stuff.

Basically I create a new 8-bit greyscale image, 256x256. Then spray paint on some grey, smooth/blur a few times, and then save in raw format.
