Flowing water from a slope / mountain

Hello,

I am currently trying out the trial to see if I can use Lumion for my project. I really like the user friendlyness of the programme thus far! There is one thing I cannot get my head around. I am trying to make a mountain and have a small river flowing down to a flat area. However I cant find out how to do that. All I am getting is a stack of flat water'planes'.  :D Is there any built in functionality for this, or must I draw a texture myself and put it on the mountain?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Denizz, which version of Lumion are you using? (You can find this info on the Settings screen)

Hello Morten,

I am using the version offered at the 'Try' section of the website, the demo of 5.3 as I am currently evaluating the software. I cant seem to find an exact version number, but I assume its the latest 5.3. ;)

Thanks for your quick reply.

Hi Denizz, please click on the Gear button in the lower right corner and attach a screenshot of your Settings screen to your next post.

Please also attach a screenshot of the scene in Build mode, so we know what kind of mountain and slope you're referring to.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Morten,

This is a screenshot of what I was trying to build.



As you can see, I am now stacking waterplanes over each other, but that doesnt really work out. I want to have the water flowing down from a gradually smaller river to when the slope increases.

Here is my settings page:

Ah, I see what you mean now :)

What you need to do is to create a model of the river in your CAD software, import that model, place it in the terrain and assign a Waterfall material to it.
