Mike Geraghty mentioned "water" in another thread. Thought I'd begin a new one dedicated to TCad drawings containing water.

Attached screenshot was made using a drawing that was begun and essentially completed back in version 8.2, then tweaked a bit and rendered in v18.1.

EDIT (21 Sep): Replaced the image with one I like a little better.

Wow Henry, that is fantastic, in fact about the best 3d water out of all the online models that I have looked at so far. I started looking  at some tutorials for water in other software, only problem learning the other software first.

I will be keeping a close eye on this thread, but also trying some masked water myself also.

The water is beautiful rendered. Absolutely something for me to learn so I can make the water in TC. Now my digital paintings has more than 50% done in TC and the rest in Photoshop to make art paintings. Do you have some advice/tips how you make the water?

I use "Glass" Reflectance, and I usually apply some kind of Texture.

Nice new version Henry. I remember looking at this and 'seeing' the water flowing. Still amazing work.

Sqirtz is a free fun little program to create moving water. I traced the water in Henrys fountain in with one path, you can notice the 'drip' on the left side of the upper form. I had to get the trace line from the bottom to the top and back. I found out later that I could trace one object, save as AVI , import back and create a second / third etc trace l

There are a variety of settings but I did high transparency setting so more of Henrys real water would be visible. The speed of the water movement is set by the frame rate when saving (default is 15, I set this to 12).

I found swf save produced the smallest file, Resizing the image in the program results in smaller files.

Thanks for posting those links Jack you got me wondering how you did it.It seems John Luck as the life canoeing, fishing, cooking, out  in the wilderness. Brings back to when I was young man canoeing on the cedar water in the Pine Barons. Although I would pass on the crocodile meat not a fan of reptiles.Now all we need is to get Turbocod to do some jumping in and out of the fountain with his little prop spinning around and that would be a real Tc video.

Nice job on the water Jack, and thanks for the Squirlz link also. The effect looks great on Henry's model. I have not had any free time yet to have a go at some water effects, but maybe in another week or so.

Hi WD , Mike,

This technique has it place. Although it was nice to use Henrys' work to test, it destroys his technique of creating water in TCAD.

I am working on a lake home so this morning I faked a lake using reflective dark blue water in TFPlan, Did rendering and added the water technique.

Here is the result. Quality and size reduced by 25%, which dropped the file size from 2.24 mb down to 1.24mb.

 To view the swf you can save and open in IE, or open ( you may have to right click / select Loop/ then right click and select Play.)
