Merging 4 Gaia terrains into 1 map

Hi! I've created 4 "levels", each as a scene with a Gaia terrain based on a unique biome. I'm thinking about moving away from "levels", and instead have a single map with mountains in between the 4 terrains, with the biomes in a 2 x 2 grid.

Is there a way I can combine the biomes / terrains / maps that I have in each Scene, into a single scene?

Thank you!

Yes this can be done. 

To start you would want to use the Scanner tool: 
This can be found in the Gaia Manager- Advanced - Gaia Tools- Scanner. 

Add this to the scene, and drag your terrain in and scan the terrain. 
This will create an .exr file which you can then use to stamp in the scene later. 

Repeat this process for all the different scene / terrains. 

After this is completed you will want to open a new scene and open the Gaia Manager. 
You can then click on the (+) icon under the World Size to open the advanced settings:

Then you would want to chose the Manual with Stamper - Workflow:

This will allow you to then stamp our the .exr scanned terrains from the previous steps.

Then stamp out your old terrains. 

If you need to blend or need more information on blending we do have a tutorial on that:
