[SOLVED] How to create animated water in PlayCanvas

Hi all,

Is there a way of creating animated water in Playcanvas? I’ve had a good look around everywhere but can’t see anything. Of course there’ll be a script for it. Are there any around?

Thanks in advance.

Take a look at this project, the WebGL shader he wrote can be found as open source code on github

Great, thank you. :+1:

This project might help:


I had a go at converting some shadertoy shaders to playcanvas (including a water one) and you can find it at


it’s not quite right but it might get you started

This project works fine on this link. but when I fork this project. It shows shader error.

The uniform name have changed for the texture offsets. This project has the new uniforms for the offsets https://playcanvas.com/editor/scene/500129

@yaustar can you please explain little bit , how to resolve that issue

I’ve updated the original project that uses the new private uniform names: https://playcanvas.com/project/363817/overview/ship-viewer

thanks. Issue resolved. Bundle of thanks
