Aquatiq is designed to quickly add water effects to scenes in Blender. The library offers 2D and 3D water assets that can be used like building blocks to create new effects and assets such as fountains and birdbaths. It features an advanced water shader called “waterial,” which is optimized for low memory usage and better performance compared to complex simulations.

Key Features:

  • Mesh or Linked Instance: Spawn the assets as either a mesh or a linked instance to save memory.
  • Looping Animation: All effects loop every 30 frames for seamless animation.
  • Mask Painting: Allows quick blending of the water effect into the surrounding environment.
  • Seamless Textures: Textures have seamless transitions, enabling most effects to be repeated infinitely.
  • Ready-Made Materials: Comes with a collection of ready-made water materials for both Eevee and Cycles, originally from the waterial add-on.
  • Showcase Beach Scene: Includes a ready-made showcase beach scene for quick visualization.
  • Layering Capability: Meshes can be layered on top of each other to create a denser water effect.
  • Diverse Assets: Features 17 fountain assets divided into sub-categories like big and small fountains, goblets and basins, birdbaths, and wall fountains.
