Nice, that definitely has a water-like feel to it. Id try make several additional layers of the effect and combine them, probably using slightly different scales for the ripples on each, to give it a little more depth and fill it out more. Its definitely a good start though.

Axeman,
How do you add layers of the same video and combine them in vision lab?? You mention different scales? Thanks, Chad

Well, I would start by duplicating the layer, but you could build the additional layers from scratch if you prefer. As far as the scale, the ripples in the water are fairly large. I suggest making some additional ripples which are much smaller in scale. The purpose of the additional layers would be to provide a variety of different sized ripples.

Hi,
I filmed a swimming pool and the waves and changed the color and slowed it down.. Not sure how to duplicate it or scale it. I added the video to it 2 times and did not notice any difference in the video, not sure if I did this right or not?? Can you help Axeman?? Thanks!
