I am trying to create a 3D version of my 2D raster using QGIS GRASS NVIZ. I have been following these steps: http://linfiniti.com/2010/12/3d-visualisation-and-dem-creation-in-qgis-with-the-grass-plugin/
I have no problems creating the 3D model, but my colors always get lost. This is frustrating because the second option on the NVIZ module asks for a raster to use for color. I've tried multiple times to get NVIZ to create the 3D model with the color of the raster indicated and I always get the Pseudocolor or grayscale colormap. The link provided in the above directions (http://linfiniti.com/2010/12/a-workflow-for-creating-beautiful-relief-shaded-dems-using-gdal/) claims to explain how to map colors, but does so only through command line procedures. I am not yet familiar enough with GRASS command line to take that route and meet my deadline.
This GISSE question did not really explain how to do it through the NVIZ module: How to change the raster color range in GRASS NVIZ?
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
