I am attempting to drape some .sid raster files over a Scalable Terrain Model that I created. I found the Bentley wiki concerning this and followed the steps. My end result is a terrain model that is just entirely shades of gray. The raster images don't seem to be draping properly on the scalable terrain. The scalable terrain was created from an xml file that is good and working. My rasters come in when I attach with raster manager. As soon as I move them over to the scalable terrain, the terrain just goes shades of gray.
Here is an image of my setup.
Any help would be appreciated.
What material should I be adding to this? I was using dcdrape on a normal terrain model before and that was resulting in very low resolution draping. I just tried to assign dcdrape to this STM and am still not getting anything but the grayscale to show up.

Which software are you using? If it is CONNECT edition then using 3SM would be better approach.
I am using Openroads Designer Connect Edition with the latest release. What is a 3SM?
3SM is Scalable mesh(or terrain) but it is part of Descartes or Contextcapture Editor.
Is that something that is inside ORD, or are those standalone programs?
No, it is not part of ORD. At first you didn't mention which product you use and it was not clear from screenshot.
Try to convert SID to TIF or ECW before attaching. MrSID format support is not native and can have problems.
