    3D Topography When Rendering

    Hi There!
    I went to render my project and the Topography is just a thin layer on top. I was wondering how to have dirt render where it's cutting into the earth. Please see the photo attached so you can actually understand what I'm trying to say

    Check section box in the view properties and adjust SB border so it cuts through the topo. When you’re done right click on the SB and hide it in view -> element.

    use section box.
    then adjustment that cut your topographi.
    if you like that,turn off section box of propertis.
    then start your render.
    good luck my dear.

    You can also turn off the Section Box under VG-->Annotations.....as I'm not a fan of the Right Click Hide if I can help it...

    Right Click - Hide Category is the same as turning it off in the VG. Right Click - Hide Element will only hide that particular element.

    Thank you all very much for all your information!
    Also 1 more question, is there a way to do the same in camera view?
