Color based height map in C4D - how?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I have access to color based height maps, from the Norwegian official "map authorities".  They call it the DOM format, I am not sure if this is ain international format.
The question is: Can C4D read this format, and use it as a displacement map? They used to offer greyscale maps before, now I only see these color maps. As you see in the attached image, I cannot use brightness to create a landscape. Maybe I need a plugin?

No, 'fraid not. Natively, Cinema has no way I am aware of to interpret colours in a displacement map.

Yes and no, for this one it is not, since they aren't arranged in a specific manner. 
If the color were for example following the HUE curve to determine the height, then you can just transform it into black and white in cinema
