I am attempting to animate running water on top of a white page (kinda like a waterfall) with a logo printed on it. It's for a friend of mine whose starting a non-profit, and I'm trying to give him something unique for his non-profit website.
However, I'm stumped. Should I take a ton of photos and work them into frames? Using Flash (a gif would be huge)? Any other suggestions as to what type of object to create? This will be a header for the pages -- and, if too large, maybe just a welcome page, because they want people to be stopped before they enter the site fully.
Also, if anyone has any animation tutorials for running water (Studio Max, Lightwave... or anything else I can pick up that is 2D or 3D), I'm all ears. Thanks
