I'm going through the Fountain effects and tutorials and trying to figure out how to create water jet effect. Please attached photo below. I tried to use Fountain 010, but, can"t make it thin like a water jet. Any ideas?

Hi bcafer, there are two different fountain types.

Fountain001 to 019 can't be adjusted. The rest can be customised.

That being said, it's not possible to make the water jet as thin as on your screenshot.

I've attached a screenshot of the thinnest possible jet so you can see for yourself.

The zip file contains an LS4 scene file that includes this fountain.

Hi bcafer

An option is to model the waterjet.  A thin tubular mesh, then apply the Waterfall Material to it for some motion in the material.

Won't that make the water run the wrong way?

Peter, I applied the waterfall material to the tubular mesh I created see the photo above I attached earlier and it works just fine. I could live with that. Morten, it runs the right direction. I got lucky I guess. Thanks.

Ok, thanks for advising you have something working.  :)  The material with very little Foam, so it's mainly a transparent/distortion water looking material, but has some animation to make it look as if water is flowing.  Normally texture motion for Waterfall is vertical down face, more noticeable if Foam seen, re why Morten raised the question.
