Waterfall from Houdini to Game-Engine June 15, 2018, 9:27 a.m.

Hi Luiz and thank you for addressing this.
Happy to her that flowmaps would be a method since there is some info on them out there.

I just needed make sure there are no other preferred methods i did not know about.

I might follow up on this with my own results after some experimentation.

Hey Guys,

i do not have a specific problem at hand. I was just watching the Death Stranding Trailer from E3 and there is one scene, where the main character passes by a waterfall. (ca. 1:30)

I think it looks really nice and other games had great looking waterfalls as well, for example Uncharted 4!

Anyway, i was just thinking about how you would go about getting a waterfall sim from Houdini into your game engine.
Would it be done with flowmaps like rivers?
Or another method?

One thing i think that is crucial, is to really ad a sense of depth to the waterfall!

Any ideas would be very welcome. As mentioned it is not something i am trying to do now, just more of a thought process!

All the best!
