This is less tutorial and more sharing an experiment with you. Can we use Heightfields and Compositing Operators to generate texture maps? The answer is an awesome yes! This is a very simple tutorial but I will label it as intermediate because it uses Surface Operators, HFs, and Compositing Operators. The file created will output Color, Displacement, Normal, and Rough Maps.  Also please note I used an Houdini Digital Asset from a previous tutorial, "Making a Dart." I included the source files and HIP. The can be downloaded at
