Animated waterfall texture
show user profile  Incognito
Hi, I'm trying to find the best way for making a waterfall while keeping the poly count at a reasonable level. I'd like to use an animated texture with a simple PArray system but I'm finding it hard to find any online.

Does anyone know of a good site that provides animated textures, or other examples of how to make good-looking waterfalls?

Animated textures won't help you, you need a static texture, and animate it in max. Is it a game-like waterfall or is it supposed to look realistic?
Edit: have you tried CGTextures?

That's what I thought. I'm going for a game-like waterfall to keep the render time in check - ideally something a little nicer than the 'thin' waterfalls on Skyrim which use textured particles.

I've just check CGTextures - very good site, thanks

there is a procedual ocean map built into MR(usable for all kinds of water), no need to look for textures.

There was a tutorial by 3DATS which had exactly what youre after and included the textures, but I just cant remeber if it was from their book, website or the London course. Could be worth a google anyway. It was a scene with loads of water and had fountains, waterfalls etc.
