View Full Version : basic water effect

05-30-2004, 07:33 AM
hi guys... i'm pretty much a newbie in using Maya Dynamics and i need some help in creating a 3d scene....

basically i want to have a large container that is filled with water... no animation required cos i'm going to render out an image in the end...

so any help will be appreciated.... i've looked into all those online tutes but they're all a bit too advanced for me i think :blush:

hope there's an easy way of doing this.....

that's it... thanks!!

u can achieve the effect from several ways from simple to complicated.

1. use a nurbs plane convert it to softbody and make original goal then add a trublance feild to it and add some bumpy blinn ahader with bluish and some kind of greenish shading. render it.

2. use maya unlimited's inbuilt ocean plane.

3. create from the 1 point above but use the ocean shader.

any problems call me.
