Controlling the Terrain Sculpting Order

Realtime Landscaping Pro maintains an internal list of terrain sculpting objects. Whenever you add a new object, it is added to the top of this list. Whenever the terrain is updated, the sculpting objects are applied bottom to top. Sometimes you will need to change this sculpting order to achieve the desired result.

To bring one or more objects to the top of the list:

1.   Select the desired object(s).

2.   Select Edit > Terrain sculpting order > Bring to front.

To send one or more objects to the bottom of the list:

1.   Select the desired object(s).

2.   Select Edit > Terrain sculpting order > Send to back.

You can also select these commands by right-clicking and selecting them from the popup menu.

In the following example, a rectangular area grader has been added with an elevation of 4'.

Next, a height map was added using a round shape. Since the height map was added after the area grader, it appears to "lift up" the area grader instead of being flattened by it.

The solution is to change the sculpting order of either object. The following example shows the result after the area grader was selected and the command Edit > Terrain sculpting order > Bring to Top was used. The area grader is now applied after the height map.
