Looks cool, can you post a video clip and your methods?

first for the water animation, what i did was made the frame amount 120 then added a particle emitter just follow the settings on the pictures. 59860598595985859857
then i added a collision object and animated it to go through the water. then add hypervoxles and opened up the viper screen.59861
then go to the hpv's shading tab and make the color a grayish blue.59864then wile we are still in the shading tab go to the shader tab and add fastfrensel and turn on every thing and set every thing to 100% in fastfrensel.59865 then go back to the color of the particles and make every thing the same as in the picture and also change the background to baby blue.5986659867
and there u have it water.59868:thumbsup::lwicon:

The forum is not allowing me to upload the zipped water.mov (too big I suppose). Here's the scene if you want to render it yourself.

I'm not getting the same HV blending effect as karlieman, but it's close.

one screenshot is still missing, out of the original 5 only 4 were posted. maybe its not needed. :) we shall see - thank you.. that water from the first post.. makes me want to swim in it.. lol

well this is great but I would still like water Dynamics in lightwave. not HV.
