Google earth terrain problem

Postby cadmunkey » Tue Sep 02, 2014 2:32 pm

Hi,

For the first time ever I have tried bringing a proposed building into G.E. to get some proposed views for planning consent (was going to upgrade to Pro to get high res image exports).
Anyway I seem to have hit a snag. The existing site has some large rocks on it that have been removed and also an old warehouse that's since been demolished. Both these still show up on Google Earth and they protrude up through my proposed model when I place it into G.E.
Is there anyway around this? I only need to flatten the existing terrain a little to hide them.

As far as I know, all you can do is turn off the terrain layer to get just the flat image. It would be nice if the terrain model could be properly imported and edited, though.

Was afraid of that. Not sure it can be used as a proper presentation tool if the Pro version cant solve this.

In Pro, you can hide buildings. But I'm using legacy mode (the old user submitted drawings), haven't tried the hide function with the new GE buildings

Hi quantj I spent a lot of time talking to Google Earths tech team about this and it wasnt solveable unfortunately. They werent planning on making any new features for it either so I had to make it manually in the end.
