Displacement Map

I was struggling with displacement maps so set out to figure out what I was doing wrong

My displacement always looked like this
I used this stones image to create a height map in Materialize
Nick Webster. (2020, June 11). Addressed to the Stones:. Cherwell. https://cherwell.org/2020/06/11/addressed-to-the-stones/

I found I was just missing the subdivision and displacement options in the objects attribute editor, no more puffy displacement maps!

I could also turn the displacement into a mesh by going Modify > Convert > Displacement to Polygons.
