I found this very helpful, I have water planes as part of my terrain models, but it is really nice to know how to create my own out of very simple geometry. It animates very nicely as well.

Thank you for the help. Much appreciated.

Thank you for the tutorial. I still have a question. How can i animate the water that it looks naturally moving? Maybe someone has a tutorial for this? Marilene

Thankyou for taking the time to show us how to do this. Now I shall go and try to do it. Very appreciated.

This is a great tutorial. I saw Jenay's render...wow. One thing with mine, following the tutorial, people standing near my pool aren't reflected in the water the way Jenay's near pool objects are reflected in the water. Am I missing something not detailed in this demo?

this was very helpful :) thank you. I just started using Poser5 and needed a waterplane for my Roman Bath.

Je suis Happy !!! In other words FANTASTIC !!! I am going to use it today !

This is an excellent tutorial. I followed it in poser 5 and got excellent results. However, are there any other tips for poser 6? When I do these steps in P6 (including the last minute poser 6 adjustments noted on this page) I get a blotchy water. When I remove the displacement node all works well but of course no ripples. Any words of wisdom from the gurus out there? Thanks!
El_Michael 3:18PM Mon, 16 October 2006
In a word, this tutorial is ELEGANT! So often I have had to struggle through tutorials where the writer assumes I have certain knoweledge, but this tutorial is pure simplicity and leaves nothing to chance. Thanks so much for giving me the knowledge to add additional depths to my scenes.

Very owesome tut. I ALWAYS looked for a way to do reflective surfaces, and not only helped me with water surfaces, but also it can be applied to metals, weapons (swords and axes), and metalic pipes. U are amazing, very very owesome tutorial. U are great and amazing and THANK YOU for the information.

This really helped me with creating water effects in Poser 6. Be sure to read the final page which gives you specific information for setting up in Poser 6. Excellent!
jtuckerndfw 10:18AM Fri, 23 December 2005
I agree with all the above comments, excellent tutorial. Simple to follow & works well. Now that I have learned a simple technique using the material room (other than for pasting images on props), I can spend hours trying different combos. Ripples or waves can also be produced on the clothplane by using the "Create Wave" function under "Object" (Poser 5). Thanks, great tutorial.

I found some ripples that work better for tropical water. http://www.grsites.com/textures/water/water035.jpg

wow thats all i can say. Super big help
akiron 9:49AM Sun, 27 November 2005
That's what I have been looking for.your discription was great! thanks a lot.
fran_joel 10:52PM Wed, 24 August 2005
Here is some additional info: It has come to my attention that the Poser "water" behaves differently in Poser 6 than it does in Poser 5. The main difference concerns the sensitivity of the displacement node value. A much lower value should be used in Poser 6 (0.005 instead of 0.1) to achieve roughly the same results. Also make sure that Raytracing and Displacement Maps are enabled in your render settings. finally, It is also a good idea to make the GROUND prop invisible before rendering. Have fun!
BludChylde 1:10PM Sun, 07 August 2005
Thanks for the tutorial. I'm a beginner with Poser and was able to follow it through and come out with decent looking results.
svdl 3:30PM Thu, 23 June 2005
Good use of the reflection and refraction nodes, a very clear explanation. By the way, you can also use a Granite or a fBm node for the displacement mapping, getting rid of texture maps completely. Especially useful when you want to render really large water planes (a complete lake for instance), and it will also free up some memory which can be used to add complexity to the scene. Well written tutorial, and the results look great!

is excellent, really adds a note (actually a symphany) of realism, has also made me start to explore the materials room. thank you

Thanks so much for this tutorial. Your setup makes phantastic water. I love it.
fran_joel 8:24AM Fri, 13 May 2005
Thank you for your comments. It's always nice to know that what you're doing is being appreciated.

i am usually lost on tuts for poser but this..made me grin big when each step looked just like yours! so simple and so easy and fast! thanks for sharing this !!
chaobell 11:22PM Sat, 23 April 2005
And here I was just fretting about how in the heck I was going to put water in a scene that needed it. So very bookmarked. Thank you!
HeroineOfTime 2:29PM Sat, 23 April 2005
Excellent tutorial - produces THE most realistic water I've ever seen in Poser! The creator of this is to be commended, firstly for creating it, and secondly for releasing it to the community!
