Flood 1.12 full review
Flood works by drawing an adjustable plane across an image. The area below that plane will be filled with a body of water that realistically reflects whatever is above the plane.
This simple-to-use plug-in also offers control over the water’s appearance, so that waves, ripples, perspective, water colour, and clarity of reflection can all be changed using sliders. Adjustments are shown in a real-time preview window, meaning the process is not only effective but speedy, too.
For truly realistic results, the flood plain has to be aligned with a real horizon in an image, making it ideally suited to use with landscapes. Results are better if objects are in the distance, rather than hogging the foreground.
