Yeah. The problem is though, that no image even shows up before clicking apply.

Perhaps it is related to something else than image loading.

Maybe it's related to the original path of the file?

From what path are you drag and dropping the file? (please provide full path like c:/.../heightmap.bmp without the ...)

Try to copy the file to C:/heightmap.bmp and drag and drop again, let me know if it helps

Are you capable of running C++ tutorial?
"SDK/Advanved/Misc/Drag & Drop.cpp" - run this, and then drag and drop the file, to verify the engine has correctly processed the drag and drop function

If not, can you at least try to drag and drop the bmp image to Converter.exe tool in "Show" mode, to check if it will load the image and display it.

Or, 3rd option, drag and drop the bmp file to Editor.exe in Data Browser mode, context menu should appear with "set path to element, open element, copy .." and select set path to element, and see what happens, also let me know if upon setting path to element the editor will display the bmp image on the right side in "Preview" region

RE: Importing Heightmaps?
Hi. I'm having the same issue with the drag and drop heightmaps and materials. I am using Windows Vista home premium. i have tried all your suggestions. I can drag and drop into both the coverter and drag and drop.cpp, but it will not drop into the material editor, heightmap image window nor the editor.exe.I have also tried the c:/heightmap.bmp and nothing happens. Two of my team are also having the same issue and are also using Windows Vista.

Thank you for you time on this issue.

at the moment I'm not sure what could be the problem as the file works ok for me on my computers, though I don't have Windows Vista to test.
there's tiny possibility it couldn't work because of some physx issue (stack/heap issue) which was fixed in last SDK, could you test it with newer SDK?

RE: Importing Heightmaps?
I'll add alternative method for selecting the image for importing heightmaps (click on the rectangle and file list will appear)
