Javascript water effect

Hello,

I have a hobby project coming up and it involves lots of beautiful photos of sunsets and cityscapes with water in them.

I would love to gently make the water ripple as if you are standing there looking at the view.

I found this one but it is more rain drops and not a standard gentle waving.

Imagine you are sitting on a dock looking out and you can see the trees in the back still as could be but the water has a movement to it... that is what I am looking for.

Thank you for any help.

Matt

I just stumbled on this three.js for something else. A quick search and there is a wave http://threejs.org/examples/#canvas_particles_waves but looks like you have to do some work.   Another example using three.js http://stemkoski.github.io/Three.js/Shader-Animate.html

Another option is using a loop of water from b-roll or created animation.  There are plenty of stock photo/video for this type of thing http://www.motionelements.com/stock-video-2818894-wavy-water-effect-looping

That looks perfect.  Use that as your background.  Use the "Big Web" though, you will not need the HD.  Then run that full screen in the background.

Hello,

I got this effect by layering a png on top of the jquery script but I need the jquery script to be 100% height, currently it is only doing 50%
