mcamp14 Posted November 7, 2009 Share Posted November 7, 2009 This might not be possible in Paint.NET because I think that it is currently impossible in photoshop, gimp, etc. However, I am going to throw this question out into the open anyway. I am working on a project for myself and it includes a water ripple effect. I have the drop ripple plug-in and I made a 2D version of a ripple in water. I used the clouds effect along with some other effects to make it look like water. I next ran the drop ripple effect on it to an amount that I found to look good. I used the layer rotate/zoom thing to rotate the layer in a way that it gives the illusion that it is on a flat surface (i.e. a floor, except with water). The only problem is that it is all flat. Sure, the ripple effect is there, but there is no height to the ripples. I am wondering if there is a way to add height. It is supposed to look something like the y=cos(x^2 + z^2) function for all of you math people, because I am one. I already checked the 3d shape plug-in under the render menu, and I don't have any idea of how to do this. My personal project involves everything from scratch, as in no external images at all. If anybody out there is a programmer, I only to visual basic and I try not to get into all of that C business, I would really appreciate a plug-in. Or if there is a plug in, please point me in the right direction. I really hope that this is not too long of a question. Thanks.
