This page provides information on the V-Ray Water Texture.



V-Ray Water is a procedurally generated texture. It can be used along with Vector Displacement (other types of displacement will not work) in order to simulate waves on the surface of water.

The TexWater node provides the following input:


uvwgen – Specifies the mapping channel.




Resolution – Specifies the amount of detail in the generated map

Patch Size – Specifies the real world size of one patch of the VRayWater texture outside of which the surface is perfectly periodic.

Height Mult – Specifies a scale multiplier for the whole texture.

Wind Direction – Specifies the wind direction and thus the direction of the waves.

Wind Direction Mult – Specifies a multiplier for the importance of the wind direction. Smaller values produce more variation in the direction of the waves.

Wind Magnitude – Specifies the strength of the wind creating the waves. Higher values produce larger waves. 

Choppy Mult – Specifies a multiplier for the choppiness of the waves. Higher values produce sharper looking waves.

Movement Rate – Speeds up or slows down the movement of the waves. This value has effect only in an animation. 

Seed – Specifies an integer used to set the starting point for the random generator. Different values produce different waves randomly.
