Flow Maps + Dynamic Terrain

Recommended Posts

How would one accomplish this? Is it even possible? Flowmaps normally are images that show the flow of traffic for the water but is associated with static terrain. Is there any method that could create a flowmap from the terrain that could be deleted or removed?

do you mean like analyze the terrain height data and create flowmap from that?  sounds doable. something like gradient descent perhaps going in steepest direction down from each pixel and then smoothing and encoding those directions into the flowmap.  could get some weird vortices i guess with noisy height map but could be a nice start.
