Hi, I have got an image that i want to turn into a mesh (plane). I want to use the color gradients of the image to create the mesh. i.e. dark colors will make the mesh deeper, lighter colors will make the mesh higher. I am applying this image to a flat plane. What can i use to do this? I currently only have access to 3d studio max.

Try using your gradient as a displacement map


open up the material editor in max, go to 'maps' choose the displacement slot, apply to plane

hope this works for ya
