rolling water thinking particles
show user profile  jsguae
I am working on water flowing down a curved path. the water flows real good in animation, but it still looks thick. I am trying to make the water stream down the curves as a sheet of water, not a massive flow of thick water.
here are the settings I used and the visual

I have played with some settings but can not get the water thinner

Any Ideas on how to achieve a thin stream

you are trying to create realistic water with ...392 particles? unless Im readin that wrong. I would suggust multiplying that figure by 100 as a start and make them smaller though I cant see what one particle looks like or how big they are so its hard to tell.

Mr. Grotey
My original settings were
particles/sec 392
speed 79"
size 2
My new settings as we speak I am letting it render
particles/sec 10000
speed 22"
size .09
I will let you know when I see a result
