Hi, I’m using Maya 2013 and created a basic poly hill landscape. Now I need to add the effect of height lines across the landscape, but I’m not sure how to.
(Example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Contour2D.svg )
I tried projecting a grid shader on to the landscape, but then of course wherever the landscape is flat the lines get stretched and no longer look like lines.
I also played around with mental ray contour lines, but as far as I can tell they are only based on poly and object borders, not on elevation or y axis coordinates.
Is there a script, plugin or shader setup that can display height lines correctly? (I have no scripting experience …)
Thanks in advance!
