Using Nanite Displacement/Tessellation in LMT

Two new parameters have been added to the "Landscape Material Parameters" drop down show here:

These two parameters control the entire nanite displacement system within the landscape material.

  • Magnitude: Essentially what it does is control the "Intensity" of the displacement.

  • Center: This controls the center point from the heightmap 0-1 value.
