Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding water, part of Up and Running in VUE.
- This chapter's all about populating scenes…with objects such as rocks and plants.…We'll begin by adding water to a lake scene.…I've got that ready,…go ahead and click to open that,…and browse for the file.…It's 05_01_water.vue,…and I get the warning dialog saying…that the preferences in this scene differ…from those of Vue itself.…That's because I adjusted the gamma…to give us a little bit better lighting and contrast.…We'll talk about gamma in the next chapter,…but for now we can just go ahead and click Yes,…and the scene opens up.…
It's got a Terrain,…just a standard (mumbles) terrain,…and a ground plane.…Let's render this to see what it looks like.…Click on Quick render in the main camera view,…and I've got a simple layered material here…in which I have green grass at higher elevations,…and some soil here down near the zero elevation point…at the waterline.…In this area here is the infinite ground plane…that we always get by default in Vue.…To add water, we can go ahead…and just click on the button on the Object Toolbar.…
