Plane Generator creates a planar surface that spans the high-poly input to the specified coverage parameter, then performs inexpensive raycasting to sample the high-poly surface around each low-poly vertex and estimate the mid-level position. This is important in capturing surface scans as you do not want exact re-projections in order to capture height data.

  1. Import your high resolution mesh and connect it to the mesh pin.

  2. Adjust the subdivisions of the plane generator, 64 is a good start. If a higher quality plane is needed you can increase the amount.

  3. Execute.

  4. Double click the node to view the resulting output.
