heightfield fileThe specified heightfield file is read. The heighfield file contains height- values which are used to create a "landscape" within a 1 x 1 x 1 cube. This is normally transformed into a more appropriate size, to create a desired effect. The best way to use this primitive is to write (or use) a program to translate ASCII (plain text) height files into heightfield files, or, better still, write (or use) a program to create heightfield "landscapes".
There is no example for heightfield (yet). Refer to Appendix C of the Rayshade User's Guide.
