Large Scale River Simulation


Recommended Posts


I am using the Ocean deformer + lots of noise to create a very large scale river (about 1.5 kms long) and I am happy with the general look of the waves etc. However, the river bends sharply in a couple of places and I'd like to be able to have the waves follow the curve of the bend. Right now, the river is moving entirely in one direction. Is there a way to make the waves follow the bend by just using the deformer (without any sim)?

I can't use any sim here because of the scale of the river and I don't have a lot of time to complete the shot. I tried using the lattice deformer after deforming the surface but that didn't work. Would appreciate some ideas here.
