<DisplaceModifier> Properties

Properties are as follows:

Property Documentation
TranslationSets the amount of displacement along the Z axis. Range is -100,000,000 to 100,000,000.
Displacement FileLinks the modifier to a .DEM, .BMP, or .TGA file on the hard disk.
Starting Corner XSets the X starting pixel of the displacement inside the imagery. You might only want to use a specific region of the imagery or you might want to start at 0,0,0.
Starting Corner YSets the Y starting pixel of the displacement inside the imagery. You might only want to use a specific region of the imagery or you might want to start at 0,0,0.
Displacement Width In PixelsSets the width ( X ) of the displacement region in pixels, relative to Starting Corner X.
Displacement Length In PixelsSets the length ( Y ) of the displacement region in pixels, relative to Starting Corner Y.
Use 24-bit Elevation DataAllows you to use a 24-bit image instead of grayscale. This allows for high precision elevation values with a higher dynamic range than gray scale values.
Minimum ElevationSets the minimum elevation for the terrain. This parameter is rarely configured by hand.
Maximum ElevationSets the maximum elevation for the terrain. This parameter is rarely configured by hand.
Overall Minimum ElevationSets the overall minimum elevation for the terrain when imagery is used to displace multiple meshes. This parameter has no effect on the displacement for a single <Mesh>.
Overall Maximum ElevationSets the overall maximum elevation for the terrain when imagery is used to displace multiple meshes. This parameter has no effect on the displacement for a single <Mesh>.
Units Per Pixel XSets the X axis spacing between elevation values. This parameter is used to generate normals maps and has no effect on the <Mesh>. This parameter is rarely configured by hand.
Units Per Pixel YSets the Y axis spacing between elevation values. This parameter is used to generate normals maps and has no effect on the <Mesh>. This parameter is rarely configured by hand.

<Modifier> Properties

Properties are as follows:

Property Documentation
EnabledDetermines whether or not the modifier is enabled.

<Node> Properties

Properties are as follows:

Property Documentation
NameSets the name of the node. Do not use / or \ [forward slash and backslash] in the node name as this produces conflicts with resolving link nodes that reference external files.
ClassSets the class of the node.
IDSets the ID of the node. This must be unique for each document, but different documents can use the same ID.
Export DisabledDetermines whether or not the node is exported during an export process, or possibly other purposes.
GuidEnumerates the Node's GUID.
