View Full Version : moon reflecting in water

I'd like to do a night scene with the moon over some water. Slight ripples catching moonlight. Any general suggestions would be appreciated. I'm not sure if I should use an image map with the moon and have ripples go over it, or try to do it with reflections and fresnel. Thanks.

Id start with a moon object with some lumiinosity on it.
Do the water in the usual way with displacements, bump and gradients to do the fresnel. :)

Great, thanks, I'll give it a try.
