mesh top part of liquid

Post by bluehonda » Fri Feb 15, 2013 10:31 am

happy valentimes.

is there a way to mesh only the top part of a liquid and cut out the bottom part? for example you have a glass of water. and your liking the motion of the liquid on top surface. and just want to mesh that part and not the bottom part because theres too much flickering. which will be seen in your refraction render. do you just use a cutting box? or is there a better way?

Make a cube (or another object if you want) & position it at the top of your fluid.

Select the mesh and use these settings.
