Filters -->Map -->Bump Map has a little bit of height control.  Lots of
other options I never quite figured out as well.

The Basic Tutorial on either of the embarrassing and outdated web sites
is everything I know about that Filter.  Perhaps some of the other options
there will get you towards your goal.

I do not know that much about 3d Art, however. I use gimp, gimp is 2d and easier for me to figure out because of that. One less direction to
worry about.

GIMP is a 22D painting program.

Therefore, it is not possible to do what you want.
You will have to either use the exported png heightfield, paint your texture over it in another layer, and them import it back on your terraforming program, or use another set of porgrans alltogether for the task you have in mind.

If Terraform cannot import a textureyou paint up in GIMP, you can preview it in POVRay instead.



thx ;)

I am trying to texture ( for game development) a heightfield
that I made in terraform [ can only export like tga or png for
gimp]( 3d) and load into gimp. I can load it into gimp but its
greyscale and only 2d which isn't going to help me with
texturing 3d objects on the terrain..any ideas?

What about mapping a gradient on it? Convert to RGB and apply
Filters->Colors->Map->Gradient Map. Is that what you are looking
