-asd+====== Height Maps ====== 
 +The Height maps within Knald are generated quickly and efficiently from [[normal_maps_knald_1.1|Normal Maps]] provided by [[the_integrator_knald_1.1|The Integrator]],​ via photographs from our [[color_to_normals_knald_1.1|Color To Normals]] functionality and our world class [[the_baker_knald_1.1|baker]]. 
 +Please see the [[color_to_normals_knald_1.1|Color To Normals]] & [[the_baker_knald_1.1|The Baker]] pages for more information. 
 +All calculations & processing within Knald are performed in double/​single precision floating point (float64/​float32). We have painstakingly ensured that with our robust I/O pipeline, with full 8, 16 and 32bit (integer and float) support, you will never suffer from precision drop due to lazy or poor coding and can focus on creating great art! 
 +You can preview your Heightmaps displaced on a primitive mesh, in real-time, with our 3D preview’s fast, efficient and scalable tessellation. There is no more need to go through complex workflows to get a Heightmap into your engine only to find that it doesn’t look the way you hoped.

 +===== The Height Group'​s Settings ===== 
 +**Use Median Anti-aliasing** This check box is a toggle between Average & Median anti-aliasing & is only available from Height maps generated within [[the_baker_knald_1.1|The Baker.]] 
 +  * Average: Results in a smooth blending of values between contiguous elements. 
 +  * Median: Results in a hard edge between values of contiguous elements.
