Water animation in Blender is a way of making objects on a surface of water move realistically. The water can be made to look like a still body of water or it can be animated. It is an advanced technique that is not easy to master.

In the first part of the tutorial, we will create a plane and place it at the bottom of the scene. We will then use a particle system to simulate water droplets falling from the sky. In the second part, we will create an animated wave effect by simulating waves with Blender's built-in noise generator. We can animate water in Blender by using two different methods: using particles or using noise.

The tools to animate water in Blender are the following:

  • The first is the "Paint" tool. This tool is used to draw a curve. You can use this tool to animate water with a constant speed or create waves by drawing a series of curves with different speeds.
  • The second is the "Vertex Paint" tool. This tool allows you to paint on vertices on an object and then animate them, either by moving them or rotating them.
  • The third is the "Mesh Paint" tool. This is similar to the Vertex Paint but it can be used on any kind of mesh, not only vertices on an object.
  • There are also other tools like the "Lattice Deform" that allow you to animate water and create amazing effects.

The best way to animate water in Blender is to use the Blender Internal render engine.

This section will provide a few tips on how to create realistic water animation:

  • The first tip is to use a map or some kind of terrain and make sure that it has some kind of slope so that the water can flow down it.
  • The second tip is to make sure that there are no gaps in the terrain, as this will cause problems when using the water tool.
  • The third tip is to be aware of the size of your map and try to keep it at a reasonable size. This will help with performance issues when rendering the animation.
