Can I import my own terrain model into Unity and use the terrain editing and texture paint tools in Unity?

I'm creating my own terrain in Maya and I would like to do the texture/foiliage painting in Unity when I import my model in. The problem is, I don't know how to do it, if it's even possible.

If it is possible, would my models have to be based like a height map. On top of that, is it possible to use terrain editing tools on imported objects?

Thanks in advance!

The terrain tools work with the terrain heightmap only. You can use this to convert a mesh to a heightmap.

bpears - You might look at the Terrain for Mobile (t4m) tool. This converts a mesh into an object that behaves much like a Unity terrain - allows for 4 layers of terrain painting, plant billboards etc, but there is no terrain sculpting. However, overhangs and cave features work great. D

Your feeling is quite correct. We are working on kiosk project, and T4M has proven quite useful.

You have to have a Unity terrain AND a terrain mesh to get this to work.
