I've been making 3d models for awhile now and I want to try something new, I need help.
I have Rhino and 3dsmax.

I have a grayscale height map and and a corresponding bitmap with color information. How do I combine these into a mesh with color information that I can then export as a VRML file.

3DSMAX has native support for VRML, so it should work. Have you tried asking Autodesk customer service? You can reach them at 1-800-964-6432.

Very Happy

Sorry that was a little flippant Rob. All the answers to your questions are in the 3DSMAX user guide that I'm pretty sure comes with the demo, they just take some time to go through. There are also many tutorials quickly accessible through Google such as these:
