Editors' review

Water simulations, with their complex distortions of space and shadow, are among the most impressive achievements of computer animation. Sqirlz Water Reflections adds a basic waterlike effect to any image or AVI video, but we find the confusing interface undermines its appeal. The main window offers no obvious tips or help files, and in our tests, the process of adding the effects presented unforeseen stumbling blocks that made it difficult to complete. Users can customize the water simulations, specifying wave strength, separation, and brightness, as well as adding transparency and the illusion of underwater ripples. But anyone seeking this potentially lovely output must be prepared for headaches in learning and using the tool.

    "Impressive!"

    December 18, 2011   |   By Mr Earl

    Version: Sqirlz Water Reflections 2.6

    Pros

    I only tried the SNOW function, but it was WAY better than I expected. There are 10 separate adjustments to make the snow just exactly as you want it. And very easy to make multiple adjustments and re-try them!!! Love it!

    Cons

    None at this point as I onlt tried one function

    Summary

    Great Program!

    January 27, 2010   |   By OldeFart

    Version: Sqirlz Water Reflections 2.6

    Pros

    First and foremost, FREE! All else is cream on top.

    Cons

    A bit complicated and time consuming to add multiple effects to project.

    Summary

    That's not to say the finished project isn't worth it, in fact it can become extraordinary in relation to one's imagination. Having several application choices makes Sqirls Water Reflections 2.6 a must to have for great water effects. Highly recommended and a thank you to it's creator(s).

    "A nice'n easy way to add life to my backgrounds"

    July 15, 2009   |   By vokikas

    Version: Sqirlz Water Reflections 2.6

    Pros

    I like doing family animations,using a mix of 3D characters and 2D pictures (bone animated), on a video (usually unstable) or PNG image background. Squirlz Water Reflections is just perfect to improve my images. Starting is almost self explanatory.

    Cons

    If starting is easy, advancing is not that fast. Some advanced features allowing to customize the work are difficult to control or learn to. And some show limitations or don't render well.

    Summary

    Overall, I like this product, instantly solved me a problem I had for sometime at no cost and little effort. Kept at its basic funtions is just perfect. Begginers will probably love it. As for pros, I have my doubts...

    "I love it will continue to use it"

    July 02, 2009   |   By classyladytwo

    Version: Sqirlz Water Reflections 2.6

    Pros

    I haven't found any problems using this one nor even using the settings its easy and it does have some suggestions that will pop up and suggest what to use. If your not sure work with it. First time I used it, fell right into place had no problems

    Cons

    When you lower the number of frames the flow of the water or snow it does tend to jump and not run a smooth rain. It could be I'm just trying different things with it I might have it to low on the settings, this is if your saving it as a gif file

    Summary

    I love it and will continue to use it. Would recommend for beginners and advanced animation artists
