Here is an example of one of the garden pools that can be found as both a static 3D model set and as a complete Realflow Scene file set.
In this Garden Pools model, water is flowing slowly into a small pool from a modern lattice-cut stone set amid some other stones and Equis (Equisetum) plantings. The pool water surface is physically accurate – it is rippled by the cascade in the area around the stones and has caustics built into the mesh.
For the static 3d model, the pool package consists of the irregular oval basin, the lattice-cut stone and surrounding stones, the fully textured Equis plants, the pool water surface, the water cascading from the stone, and the foam top. All the objects, including the liquid sub-components are UV-mapped and have appropriate textures applied to them. You can easily change the textures and materials to suit the environment (garden setting) within which you place the model.
For the Realflow Scene file set, there is the Realflow simulation with all of the above objects, easy-to-understand documentation, a set of user controls to alter the vigor of the water and the amount of foam in the animation, and a complete set of Maxwell Render materials for quick video or still image production within Realflow itself. You also can re-time the animation to make the water appear to flow more slowly or more quickly. If you navigate to the Realflow Scene file for this particular model (go here), you can view a video showing the vigorous nature of this particular pool in its default setting.
