Water ripple effect

Postby schnarch on 09/18/2017, 4:29 pm

Hello everybody :)

First of all, apologize please my English. I'am from Switzerland and I'm not so good in English.

Okay, I'm now trying and searching a long time for a nice water ripple effect. But I couldn't find something very realistic. I tried a lot with the "Water World"-Effect, but I didn't got a nice result. A lof of tutorials are also with this effect or with radio waves.

The result should be a preset whitch I can use per drag and drop on pictures and videos. So it shouldn't be real water, it should ripple some of the pixels on the picture or video. It should also have some fake-reflections whitch should look realistic. The whole animation should be smooth with an adjustable value of rings. And if some of the ripples cross each other, they should merge.

I'm now trying and searching a very long time, but I have no idea how to create this effect. Sometimes, I think its impossible to create this. I hope you guys could help me and also, that you understand my problem and my wishes :)

Best regards and thank you in advance
