    VUE to Unity

    Hi,
    My friend works with VUE well and as it is mostly for making terrains so it is better than Unity in this part.
    Well I wanna know is there anyway to import VUE's terrain to Unity and can we edit them with unity?
    I am going to start a very important project and if importing terrains form VUE and editing them Unity solve then I tell my friend come to our group.
    If there is no way then I should work on terrains in Unity by myself.

    If there is a way to export your VUE terrain as OBJ or FBX then you're good to go. However, you may want to keep an eye on poly count.

    Well importing is not enough.
    We wanna make terrains in VUE then in game designing if I see it needs any change I do it in Unity.It's hard to make exactly what I want somewhere(VUE) and use somewhere else(Unity).
    And because our project is not a game for people and it's a show case of our abilities there is no problem with poly count.

    Because while designing the level I see somewhere should raise a little and if I wanna do it in VUE I have to tell my friend(he has VUE not me) raise that part and after getting that huge file(terrain)I see it has raised a lot so I have to tell him to fix it and again again again.

    Well, that friend is not here in my house and we have to talk about it on the net and it's hard for us.
    So if Unity can't edit VUE's terrain I have to think about a better way.

    As far as i am aware, E-on Software have not included FBX support in Vue, at least, i can't find it listed on their website. Even the Import/Export module (which adds a lot of extra I/E plugins and features to Vue) does not add FBX support.

    And Unity does not natively support the .VUE file format, so editing terrains back and forth without using Import/Export is not possible, unless you create a hi-res hieght map in Vue then use that hieght map to create your terrain in unity. (I know it's not what you're after, but it's one of the best options)
    Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

    Games in pipeline:

    "Target Sighted" FPS Archery game - Pre Alpha/Planning stage.

    War of The Worlds re-make, Title undecided. Remake of the 1998 RTS game. Pre-Alpha/Planning stage.

    hotsun> its a nightmare, it took me some real messing around to just get vue to bake into maya (once u have it as maya poly's you cant re-edit in vue's). i was making trees, total downer all the Joint data is lost on conversion to poly data- duh. i gave up on vue's in the end and went back to building trees maya style, vue just doesn't have a clean workflow that i could find (i only give it a few days of tinkering).

    i think you can export the hightmap from vue's and use that on a unity terrain?

    Just export the height map ! Works like a charm. you control the overall resolutions w/in Unity and can edit the map later. Pick up Tom's terrain tools and you can create & export splat maps as well and bring over your planned ecosystem areas as well. You do not need to export the actual geometry from Vue.

    The right answer is usually the one that gets the job Done!

    Well,After reading your answers and talking about it with my friend then we decided to do the height map in VUE (Because of good quality)then I do the terrains by myself.

    Thanks everyone.
