It is recommended to convert the terrain dataset or a portion of the terrain dataset that you want to work with in ArcGlobe to a raster dataset using the Terrain To Raster 3D Analyst geoprocessing tool. This conversion is to improve performance as a terrain will be rasterized on-the-fly in ArcGlobe.
