A script snippet showing how to offset an image using an offset heightmap.The solution is a brute-force approach and is certainly not lightning-quick, but with low scan values you may be able to use it for (e.g.) a terrain height map or other faux 3d environment.


Snippet, script, height, heightmap, offset, lookup.
