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"

My water material looks like blue paint. How can I make it better?

It uses a flowmap and moves around nicely, but doesn't look anything like water. Other than making it transparent I don't know how to go about making it look more convincing. This is for VR so I am trying to avoid transparency if possible. Water material download Blue paint Node overview

I dont think you can work around making it not transparent. Its a important attribute of fluids especialy Water even if its very dirty. You always get some Metalic/plastic look without. Even for something like Depth Fade you need a translucent Material.

The only thing you can make would be more foam and proper reflections (add more Objects around so you got something to reflect).
