Didn’t want to clog up problems/support with this:
I’ve read through a few threads talking about 3D engraving and can’t seem to get a couple stupidly-simple questions I have answered. I’ve seen the threads with instructions to help make depthmaps and such, and there’s this quote from the GF team:
You can’t use a regular image for this - you have to use an image that’s been specially created for 3D engraving called a Heightmap. A Heightmap is like a grayscale picture, except that the darker a spot on the picture is, the deeper it will engrave.
So, can someone answer these questions explicitly:
- Is there an actual “3d Engrave” setting, or is this just something the GF automatically does with grayscale values?
- Does that mean we need a specific file type for a Heightmap?
- If you do need a specific file type, what is the file type extension that the GF reads?
