I'm having difficulties applying a Heightmap in Maya 2017. The edges of my plane get displaced for some reason, even though this should not be the case according to the map. Any idea what could cause this behaviour?

This is the map that I'm using.

The edge pixels of that image aren't black. This is behaving exactly as it should. Did you really not even bother to zoom in on that height map?
Also why not just manually flatten the edge verts?
Also You need to clamp the levels of this image or it's going to look like shit.

That is indeed my fault. I should have checked the map before using it as a test.


>Also why not just manually flatten the edge verts?
Because this is merely a test of a heightmap generation algorithm, so fixing the terrain would come later down the line.

Guys, I just used this map so I could test if I had something wrong with Maya settings.

Okay, so I'm more troubled than I was before. It does seem that Maya is behaving as expected, yet my terrain is still fucky. Now, I've checked the edges of my generated map and do not see anything that shouldn't be there. Note that I've used the same algorithm in Maya 2015 and did not get these weird edges.

Here's the map my algorithm generated and was used above.

Check your UV map?

There isn't one. I'm doing this via Deform > Texture and then I choose a file.

It does appear that it's trying to "continue" the map at the edges, so I'm convinced my method of doing this is wrong. I've done this differently in Maya 2015, but it looks like this has been completely changed in 2016 onward.

As I'm not that skilled in Maya, I'm asking if someone can provide me a proper way of applying displacement maps. Thank you.
