VFX Reference Vault: Waterfalls

Welcome back to the Beyond-FX Reference Vault

Our secret stash of VFX reference materials is open and ready for sharing! Join us as we showcase some of our favorite materials for some of the most needed real-time VFX. Who knows, these might be just the thing your own real-time VFX reference vault needs…


Waterfalls are natural occurrences that happen when a cascade of water flows over a vertical drop. They can vary in size, shape, and power and even come in different types like punchbowl, horsetail, and staircase. Waterfall effects can be used to enhance any scene by adding drama or creating a relaxing environment. For this week’s vault, our team left the rivers and lakes to go chasing waterfalls to inspire your VFX!
