Looking for a guide to using the Water Editor?
Vue 7 has introduced a new feature, the water editor. This stunning addition allows you to add displacement mapping to the surface layer making it massively more realistic and allowing acurate shadows to be calculated.
Firstly we will look at the standard water which has been rendered in vue 6 pro studio with “ultra” settings and at 1024×768 pixels with just the default atmosphere.
Looks fairly good, but in vue 7 the new water editor feature improves this massively by adding a displacement map.
Below is an example of a similar image from vue 7 complete with the water editor used again with default atmosphere, on “ultra” setting at 1024×768
A massive improvement. This isnt all the water editor does though, it can be used to change the levels of wind, direction of wind, foam, wave height, wave amount, choppiness and agitation.
Below is an example of a similar image from vue 7 complete with the water editor used but with a slightly rougher sea again with default atmosphere, on “ultra” setting at 1024×768
Foam can also be added by the editor both around shorelines and on the tips of waves as demonstrated below.
This is a very powerful feature.”
