ocean
show user profile  rob@dynamic
Morning all,

So I have a question for you...

I'm working on a project at work at the moment, that requries a render of a yaught at sea.

I was wondering what you guys would recommend as the best way to create realistic sea?

I played around very briefly last night with the water texture in the A+D materials, but couldn't get good results. Do you need a proper light, set up, with exposure control ect... for this to work?

Also, would you guys apply the ocean texture to a plane or a box?

Anyway, any tips on how to create a realistic ocean would be much appreciated.

Thanks

edit: I'm using max 2009 + Mental Ray
