Heatmap Documentation Video
This video is for users who want to learn how to use heat maps in new landscape materials to have the same texture details as the default one.
The marketplace use rights allow you to export assets not created by Epic Games itself to other DCC game engines and software, although obviously, some features require UE4 to work.
The pack has a very basic landscape material but for anyone who wants to use advanced landscape materials, it also included the original heatmaps so that you can have all the details of the original terrain with your own materials or any material pack that can be found in the Marketplace.
Sky Sphere uses the same system as Epic’s Demonstration Projects. It’s a one, distorted 360-degree image, modified for the UVs of a sphere mesh.
