WHAT YOU GET
- DEM Earth Generator – A realtime landscape generator which automatically downloads and caches DEM data for you, for the entire world
- PinPoint Object – Used for placing any 3D object on DEM Earth landscape with ability to dynamically scale and move with the landscape
- Way Object – A flexible spline Generator for Visualizing paths between objects on the landscape
- Coverage Command – Visualize what DEM files your have already cached
- GeoPointConverter – together with the Tools4D OpenStreetMap importer,easily overlay massive OSM data sets onto DEM Earth
- GPX Importer – Easily import Tracks,Routes and Waypoints. Drag and drop your gpx file into C4D, DEM Earth does the rest.

Current version is R3 – 3.10
This version is ready for R19 and fixes several missing tile servers.
Version 3.10 Aug 16th 2017
Fixed – a problem stopping DEM Earth from working fully with C4D R19.
Fixed – missing UV Coordinates, making baking textures a bit strange.
Fixed – missing Map Tile Servers.
Added – new map tile servers.
Fixed – various bugs and changes.
Q: Can I upgrade from DEM Earth 1 to DEM Earth 2?
A: YES. If your support is up to date, you can upgrade from R1 to R2. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org and ask how.
Q: What do I need to use DEM Earth?
A: Cinema4D R13, R14, R15 or R16 – OSX or Windows 64 bit and an Internet connection.
Q: Does DEM Earth download DEM Data for me?
A: Yes! DEM Earth automatically downloads 90m data based on the ASTGTM data set, for free. You can also get high res data from our server (where available) for more accurate terrain.
Q: Do I have to keep downloading data?
A: Initially, yes. But each tile (file) is downloaded and cached locally. So the next time you use this tile it is read from the local cache.
Q: Can I bake out my landscape?
A: Yes, you can easily convert your model to a standard polygon object.

Version 3.08 Nov 18th 2015
Fixed- a problem preventing old scenes loading with 3.07, if they contained embedded height data
Improved – increased the maximum area of a GPX track to 1000km
Version 3.07 Nov 17th 2015
Changed – prefs password is now masked after entry
Added – prefs option “Center After Embed” decide if DEM earth should center on your embed data, when you add it.
Added – custom server to prefs.Use your image server with DEM Earth.
Fixed – some issues with gradient refresh.
Improved – gradient height values can now go below zero (needed for bathemetry)
Improved – Massive speed up with DEM Earth tile extraction.
Fixed – multiple minor issues.

Fixed – GPX Loader was broken.
Version 2.70 Mar 31st 2015
Added – Console info showing which plugins loaded correctly.
Fixed – Issues with ASC embedding.
Solution – Pre 2.61 files containing an OSM Object wont load. See this solution..
Fixed – Strata, UV’s where upside down.
Fixed – bug causing height data to try to re download when opening a scene.
Fixed – bug stopping the loading of any height data, when downloads are turned off.
Added – Image re projection- This resolves all alignment issues when mapping large areas. Image overlays are now perfect, no matter how large the area is !
Version 2.61 Mar 17th 2015
Massive speedup for 90m data access (up to 10 x faster downloads)
Improved – ASC embedding and fixed some refresh bugs, when changing between data-sets.
Added – BingMap Layer (More info here..)
Added – UVW coordinates. Makes it much easier to transfer DEM Earth to external engines (such as unity)
Improved – OSM Importer. Added the ability to import custom OSM data, exported from global mapper, or other apps, where reference ID’s have negative numbers.
Improved – OSM Importer. Now uses double longs, which is now essential as the osm database has become huge.
Added – TR Support (More Info here..)
Added – Disclaimer for Image downloads.
Improved – Downloading Performance.
Added – Several new image layer links, including the awesome Tweetmap.
Fixed – A distortion problem, as coordinates move away from the equator. Causing an undesirable latitude stretch.
Improved – sloppy texture updating in editor on child objects when stacking multiple DEM Earth objects.
Added – Rounding setting. This lets you turn the good old square DEM Earth, into a round DEM Earth. (bit slow in this version but i’m working on it)
Changed – Abstraction now only effects above sea level.
Added – Proxy Settings to prefs.
Added – secure SSL connection to license, and height data servers.
Fixed – An issue preventing the strata being built after object was turned off.
