So I have a scene where my object has the wave modifier and the start position object is an empty axis. Here's my wave modifier settings:
Here's what happens when drag the empty nearby:
but when the empty is animated as soon as it gets nearby, nothing happens:
Also if it helps I have a subdivision modifier above the wave one.
Do I have to apply the wave modifier? Is there something obvious I'm missing? Or can you simply not animate the start position object?
