Here’s a recent post by Douglas Stahl who created an after effects file making water without using any 3rd Party Plugins or 3D fluid simulations. This is based just on 2d layers. It can be used for background stuff or fly overs.
The real challenge is to have the timing right and give the waves some sort of randomness. For this reason also check out this great video. It shares some good points and saved a lot of try and error: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DYe4…
