FranOnTheEdge www.franontheedge.com Richard Vanlippe's Waterfall Tutorial for Bryce This tutorial is no longer available on the original creator's website,  so to ensure it is not lost I am hosting it here.   It would be such a shame to loose it. Creating a Waterfall Animation By Richard Vanlippe Wirefame terrain arranged  in scene file Scene file showing the  duplicated wireframe terrain Open your previously saved  terrain in PhotoShop or copy  the terrain from within the  Terrain Editor Duplicated terrain with selections  drawn with PhotoShop's lasso tool  to define the water areas A rendered view of the edited  terrain assigned a red material A rendered view  of the edited terrain  assigned a water material Second terrain copy with  the previous selections feathered  and then brightened by +17 An important step before assigning a volume material to a terrain  is to set the terrain to "Solid" in the Terrain Editor. If you don't do  that, you'll just be wasting rendering cycles for an affect you won't  even see. This is a quick discussion concerning the basic controls for volume materials and no more.
