    Hi Jonathan,

    Thanks for the tutorial! I’m a blender newbie, but after stumbling across your tutorials this last month, I’ve been able to scramble up the first (worst?) part of the learning curve.

    Hi Jonathan,

    Awesome tutorial as always! I have been having a pretty significant issue however. I am currently using 2.56, each time I finish a scene and attempt to render and save to a file that isnt the default tmp, nothing happens. I select a path in the render tab that I believe should work but nothing ever appears in the folder I select. Is there something Im missing or not doing properly?!?

    Very cool! I did figure out that the ‘Falloff’ parameter can be used instead of the texture for the damping out of the waves as you get farther from the center. I do like the control afforded by the texture method though.

    I am a blender newbie and I was looking at your wave modifier presentation in the Blender Cookie tutorial. If you crank up the amount of the Falloff only and animate it, then I think you might get the result of it. Thanks! Cleven.

    P.S. I don’t know whether someone sent you the same answer to your question about the Falloff in the wave modifier or not. Cleven.
