Simulates water or wave effects.

The Waves map generates a number of spherical wave centers and randomly distributes them over a sphere. It is often used as the Bump map to simulate the surface of a body of water. You can control the number of wave sets, the amplitude, and the speed of the waves. This map works effectively as both a diffuse and bump map at the same time. It can also be useful in combination with an opacity map.

Click the Click for Waves settings button. The map property settings specific to Waves are displayed. The description of the controls can be found in the Waves Property Settings under the MATERIALS command.
