I am using QGIS 3.0, where I can't find the Raster Terrain Analysis plugin.

I am under the impression that the plugin was embedded into the QGIS 3.0 version, as under "Raster --> Analysis" there are options for "Hillshade", "Slope" and "TRI" for no relief.

If this is the case, does anyone know how to obtain "Relief"?


If you search for Terrain analysis in the Processing toolbox you will find what you want. The tool moved from Raster -> Terrain analysis to Processing Toolbox -> Raster Terrain analysis:

I am using QGIS 3.4


There is also an alternative option from the GRASS GIS library.

The module called r.relief that does the same job as "Relief" in Raster Terrain Analysis Plugin.

Creates a shaded relief map from an elevation map (DEM).
