Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Converting images to .r16 (heightmap tiles)?

I have 16 images that I am trying to use as a terrain's heightmap, with each image being a "tile". Unfortunately, the only format that UE4 will accept for landscape tiles is .r16, and I can not find any way to convert these images to this specific file format. What are the ways that I can do this using simple tools, or Photoshop?

It should also accept 16-bit grayscale png. The tiled import was upgraded to accept png in 4.12.

Any .jpg or .png file cannot be converted to .RAW format .Only vice versa is possible .Try using .png .UE4 works fine on png .Just convert to greyscale. Hope this helps.
