Waterfall effect?

Post by thexcadguy » Fri Jul 25, 2014 10:55 pm

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to create a falling/cascading water effect (either within the model or via Photoshop). See pictures to see what I mean. So many of my models have cascading water that I would really like to figure this out. Comments on the model welcomed as well (yes I know the tree in the foreground is horrible. I'm still figuring out post pro of trees e.g. shadows and reflections in windows, etc. Im familiar with duplicate layer, remove color, change opacity and the use transform to skew shadow to ground but not sure how to deal with reflections in the window, etc - plus finding good trees to import, etc)

Thanks in advance!

Cascading waterfall effect is easy, paint the "falling" part of the water with a separately named water material from the water in the pool, then use any of the procedural fountain waters created by Majid for this purpose, they are available:
Go here Procedural Waters (28) for Twilight by Majid
look inside that thread for "Water_Fountain_Twilight_byMajid.zip"
The VIDEO DEMO and more examples of this type of fountain and how to use the procedurals are HERE: Procedural Water Fountain by Majid
Also, download/see
Bubbles, Water Drops, Fountain Splash
