In this example, we have a steep incline that was created by flattening an area, however, it left these vertical areas with fewer Landscape vertices spread across the surface which caused the textures to
appear stretched and some jagged artifacts around the edges of the flattened area. By using the Retopologize tool the surrounding vertices have been pulled and redistributed without significantly altering the
work that was done to make the flattened area. This reduces the stretching and jagged edges that appear.
Use the following controls to paint an X/Y offset map to retopologize your Landscape heightmap:
Left Mouse Button
Heightens or increases the heightmap or selected layer's weight.
Retopologize Lit View
Retopologize Wireframe View
In these comparison examples, you can see how the texture stretching has been reduced in these sharp inclines for the lit view and with the wireframe view you can see how the vertices have been redistributed
to be more evenly spaced in these steep inclines.
