Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How to make water with radial waves, not fixed direction?

I have made quite a good water material with multiple waves and refraction, etc...

I have been trying to figure this out for a while, but I could not come up with a way...

So does anyone know how to make water where the ripples/waves radiate out of the centre instead of all going in one direction?

Thanks :)

Using panners and or rotators on the texture withing the material will set them in motion, adjusting the parameters will give you control on what it's doing. Just be careful, I'm not sure you can use a rotator AND a panner on the same texture, I tried this and got odd results in which the layers were accelerated 10 fold.

But I had some reasonable success in throwing 3 of the same texture in and adding a panner to 2 and a rotator to 1, then add them together before joining to the base colour.

Hope that helps!
