Realistic Water in 3DS Max


Realistic Water Texture Tutorial - FinalThis quick tutorial will help you create realistic water for your 3DS Max scenes. You’re going to use mental ray’s Arch& Design material. The trick to water and the A&D material in general is in the details so this is what we’ll be discussing here.

The result:

Mixed with the Realistic Grass, the Old Rock Procedural Texture and the HDR Reflections tutorials:

1/4 The Scene

Enable the Mental Ray renderer from the Render Setup window/ Common/ Assign renderer. Go to the Customize/ Units Setup and set the Display Unit Scale to Metric/ Centimeters. This is very important as we’ll be working with somewhat exact measurements.

Realistic Water Texture Tutorial - Final RatsGo to the Systems tab {} and place a Daylight system in your scene.
Select the Daylight system, click the Modify tab {} and set the Sunlight to mr Sun and the Skylight to mr Sky.
To create the water surface, go to the Geometry tab {} and create a simple plane that covers the fountain geometry.
Convert the plane to an editable poly so we can modify its overall shape.

Go to the Modify tab{}, select the vertex sub-object and pull-in the corner vertices.

2/4 The Water Base

Open-up the Material Editor {} {“M”} and select an empty slot. Press the Standard button and assign an Arch&Design Material.
Select the Water, Reflective Surface from the drop-down menu
Now, to make the material actually look like water there are a couple of things we have to keep in mind:
Fountain water is transparent.
» The water’s texture is mostly generated by reflections
» If the water is still, you won’t notice any reflections. => We need a displacement map.

Gnomon:
Academy (all Max have used DVDs from all of the above and all were excellent, so I recommend looking through all three and choosing the DVDs most relevant to what you want to learn.

Good luck.
