Can heightmaps be animated?

in Questions Posts: 1,795
If I rendered a small circle moving across a plane to the heightmap used by a cube, would it look like a little lump traveling around the cube?

    @UberGoober - what do you mean by circle? Are we talking 2D circle or a sphere?

    Well it’s a circle because it’s drawn to a 2D image. The heightmap is 2D. So if I animated a circle moving across that 2D surface, it’s possible that it would look like a lump moving around on a 3D object.

    @UberGoober - yup, I agree. Also you may probably see the circle retaining size if you move the cube in the z axis as the 2D element would be fixed unless you scaled accordingly
