I am working on a project where I need to set up a CG puddle and have an item splash into the puddle. I have looked around on the web for quite a while, unable to find any tutorials or examples. Everything out there seems to be an expensive plugin. Does anyone know of a good link to a tutorial or could personally give me a few tips on how to setup this scene? Thanks, Drew

what might work is if you set up a divided plane, use softFX or if you dont have LW8, use motion designer so that when the object hits the surface, it will deform the skin of the water, then maybe use particles for the splash part. You could also maybe use particles entirely... i've never filled up a hollow object with particles before but you may be able to do that and then throw a collision object in with the particles. i've never experimented with those but just thought i'd give some ideas

I think for a puddle you could use a displacement map for the puddle and use hypervoxels for the splash.
