Default Free surface VOF (fluid render effect)

I am struggling at the moment. I performed a VOF calculation (fuel in a tank). I would like to plot on my display the fluid itself but with a good 'fluid effect'. Does anyone did a macro for it or could help me to setup the color properties to achieve this result?

Thanks in advance,

Try Tools > Color Tool
You'll need to select only two colors for color scale when visualising VOF, and then add translucency to these colors with Color Tool. You can make "air" fully transparent and then play with translucency value for "water"
