watch the video to get the low down :)

the grassy terrain below was a simple flat 100x100 plane
i simply loaded a bump map
and a few seconds later i had a morph that lets me raise mountains

also seen below, a bump map applied to a specific material of a dress creates "real" wrinkles in the fabric

    I've used mcjElevate to great effect in DS3, for making water planes...it's amazing what this script, a ripple brush and GIMP can do...

    Off to download the update.

    Hi Casual,

    I have downloaded your script and the update of the same. But it seems it's not working in DS4.6.3.52 since it's not showing up under scripts. I assume it only works for DS4.5 as I can't see an update?

    it should work with ds 4.5 4.6 and up

    the place it shows up depends where you unzipped it

    when i unzip the zip file in
    c:\Program Files (x86)\DAZ\Studio\content\scripts\mcasual

    then i see it in my library in
    Daz Studio Formats / studio / scripts / mcasual


    when i unzip it in
    C:\Users\MYUSERNAME\Documents\DAZ 3D\Studio\My Library\Scripts\mcasual

    then i see it in
    Daz Studio Formats / My Library \ Scripts \ mcasual

    ======

    the zip file also contains images and the manual in HTML format
    it was not a very good idea on my part
    but it's one reason why you should unzip this in a scripts/mcasual folder
    instead of in your /scripts/ folder

    ======

    in those days, the way i packaged scripts was not ideal
    newer scripts, you just unzip it in a Daz Studio content folder
    and the zip file creates all the sub-folders and places everything where it should

    Thank you Casual, I will try to re-install. Thanks again for all your scripts!
