Hi All,

Is it just me, or has TIF disappeared as an option for importing height maps and textures in CityEngine 2015?

I had always used TIF to export from ArcMap and import into CE, but now it looks like I may have to change. It's slightly annoying, since the other file types don't seem to work for exporting my 32bit DEM, so I guess I'll just have to make a CityEngine-compatible version of it.

That said, I think I'll survive

This all works fine for me - I'm on 2015 Advanced Concurrent. 

Maybe re-install will help?

Hi Nathan,

You could use .IMG format for DEMs. I always do and there`s no problem.

Thanks for the help guys. Strangely, neither IMG nor TIF are showing in my 'select heightmap file' options.

I think either I'm doing something silly, or I'm missing some options that appear for you?

If you copy your heightmap into a folder or connect a folder in which you have the heightmap, try drag and drop it into the scene and I think it will load

That doesn't work either unfortunately - it just takes me to the generic import window.

I'm not sure if it's related, but I'm also having an issue with textures - in that none of them work!

Even a simple rule like the one below comes up with unknown texture. I've tried downloading example scenes and they come up with the same thing (no textures).

attr Texture = "/CapacityModelling/assets/g_f001_t006_Residential_036.jpg"

Lot -->

  extrude(world.y, 12)

  split(y){4 : Lot2}*

Lot2 -->

  setupProjection(0, scope.xy, 3, 3)

  texture(Texture)

  projectUV(0)

  Lot3.

I've tried deleting my .cityengine folder, but that didn't help. I've attached an error that seems to come up every time I open CityEngine (not sure if it's related).

Thanks Ben - you're on the mark. It was good just finding out that the problem was just with my own CityEngine.

I've reinstalled CE and it's working fine now
