Author Topic: [SOLVED] SD height scale vs Redshift Heightmap scale value  (Read 80 times)

I am testing a render with maps created from Substance Designer using Houdini Redshift.
The Image 1 is a screenshot of Substance Designer and the image 2 is a screenshot of Houdini render.

My questions are

1. They are using the same scale value "1" but I cannot understand why I have such a drastic difference between two images. Can anyone explain me why?

2.  How should I deal with this issue?  I can match shape of geo pretty close by changing scale value on both programs but I want to make a better pipeline for myself. I do not want to talking to myself '...well this is close enough so chillax dude...'

If I am uploading a topic already solved, I apologize in advanced but couldn't find close one.

Anyway, thank you!

The plane (and all the other primitives) is 100 units large. So a height scale of 1 will displace the geometry of 1% its length.
I assume your plane in Houdini is 1 unit large, so the displacement intensity is relatively higher.

The displacement intensity is too high

Thank you brianq!

Thank you Nicolas! Yes, my grid size was 10X10 and both of them started to match as soon as I changed to 100. (image attached) I had no idea that primitives have 100 unit. Really helpful information and very clear now. Really appreciate!
