View Full Version : A really stupid question

I dabble with LW to make simple animations for my job.

Several years ago I ran across a tutorial on how to animate the surface of a "liquid" to show waves, etc. in an animated format.

I can't remember how to do this task or find the tutorial.

Can anybody point me in the right direction?

You should use sub-patches with high sub-division. And add displacement in Object Properties window.
Liquid should have reflection and refraction, don't forget to turn them on in Render Globals > Ray-Trace.

You said waves. So I presume your not talking about a glass of liquid. For ocean, this discussion is good. Here (http://www.newtek.com/forums/showthread.php?t=111857&highlight=ocean+waves)
