I am new to blender and here for a very specific task. I have a fixed geographic area defined by tif image (geotiff). Each pixel of this image has a height value. I have 100 such images of the same area, but value of pixel varies.
Case 1: Following a tutorial as here (Raster extrusion ) I am able to extrude pixel height for each image.
Now, I would like to add all these images as a sequence with increasing and decreasing heights. And make an animation to export to fbx animation.
Case 2: The second option i thought of is: I would like to animate these pixies based on the values they hold. For example I just keep one image, and for each pixel of this image be able to read a time series data file at different time frames. That is, imagine a text file having pixel ID, pixel height. So timeframe one is value v1, timeframe two is value v2..... till value v100. So the extrusion of pixel value varies on this sequence of values coming from a text file.
I feel the second case will look more elegant because then blender can interpolate pixel extrusion values between these timeframes. And again, I would like to export it as fbx animation that can be imported to unity.
Any guidance will be great help :)
