Waterfall Properties

The properties used to modify a Waterfall object are located to the right of the screen when your waterfall is selected. Some of these properties can either be adjusted right before adding the waterfall to your landscape while others can be adjusted only after it has been added. Below is a description of each available property in the order that they appear in the software.

Height

The Height property determines how tall the waterfall is. To adjust the waterfall height, move the Height slider or type a value in the text field.

Rotate about X

The Rotate about X property determines the angle of the waterfall about its X axis. If your view is facing north, this will rotate the waterfall forward or backward. To rotate the waterfall, move the Rotate about X slider or type a value in the text field.

Rotate about Y

The Rotate about Y property determines the angle of the waterfall about its Y axis. If your view is facing north, this will rotate the waterfall left or right as if it was sitting upon a pottery wheel. To rotate the waterfall, move the Rotate about Y slider or type a value in the text field.

The Rotate about Z property determines the angle of the waterfall about its Z axis. If your view is facing north, this will rotate the waterfall left or right as if it was sitting upon the face of a clock. To rotate the waterfall, move the Rotate about Z slider or type a value in the text field.

Align to terrain

The Align to terrain property determines if the waterfall is automatically tilted when it is placed on uneven terrain. If this option is disabled, the waterfall will remain upright by default. To change the automatic terrain alignment, click the Align to terrain checkbox.

Scale evenly

The Scale evenly property determines if the waterfall is stretched or not when you adjust the width, depth, or height. If you wish to simply enlarge the waterfall, then keep the Scale evenly option checked. If you wish to stretch the waterfall in any direction, then uncheck the Scale evenly option.

Enable enhanced surface detail

The Enable enhanced surface detail property determines whether or not the waterfall will have increased detail when viewed up close.
