Is it possible to set water up this way using Construct 2?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

I have a link to a water effect ive seen on the web and it is so epic that i must know how to recreate this using our engine.This is the best looking water ive seen in a long time.The realisim of how the water moves is eye candy in its own right.Ive tried using sine and the outcome looked pretty obvious that it wasnt natural at all.

Does anyone have the knowledge to actually recreate this? Ive seen some of the stuff it requires and its way out of my league as of right now.
I feel that this water effect could help make alot of platform games feel more polished.Could anyone recreate this effect?
It would be pretty cool if someone threw their 2 cents in.

Possible with canvas plugin.

You can make a wave when rock hits water - set height of wave etc. And splashes can be a quick animation.

There is a demo floating around somewhere. Either forums or tutorials - can't remember, was last month sometime.

@DUTOIT Whats up Bro, Thanks for the quick reply!

Is there any tutorial on how to make it work? I understand the logic somewhat but im unaware of how to use the canvas plugin.I know how to use particles pretty well for splashes, bubbles ect.. This just seems pretty advanced to me.

There is a capx floating around. Can't find it on my harddrive. I Just have screenshots of Actions :( Check arcade, check tutorials, and check forum with date 2014/08/19 that is what I have as capture date for screenshots
Oh, the example also used sine behavior.
