Hi I'm creating a shot of a bath water with a humanoid in the bath, I would like to make the water basically appear to have an impression of a human body
in the water, please see still below for a rough idea! It must still be animated...

- any ideas how to achieve this?

- How do you create a wave generator in Lightwave?

Hey cajol, have a poke around here


There's a water tute in there somewhere which is exactly what you want, I just can't find it. Um, look for water?

In any case, you're looking at cloth dynamics but you can also generate waves via textured displacement ( and many other ways besides).

In the properties panel ... deform/add displacement/Textured Displacement ( the plug-in is "Texture.p") and apply it to a not too heavily sub D plane and hit play.
