there is some loss of resolution in the background cause i compressed it to a jpg...if you want to see the full resolution tiff, you can go here:

http://www.geocities.com/butterflies...heSeaStill.tif

and orgeeizm, no motion blur, but i did use depth of field during rendering, so there is bluring in the foreground and background...

thanks for checking it out!

Hmmm.. i think it doesnt look like underwater, but that's just me

The jelly fish... he looks ok. but i mean, his tentacles are one entity, you should split them up to seperate tentacles, add bubbles, maybe a shadowy rippelly effect from the waters surface cast over the top of everything? Definately too much blur.

looking alright though

thanks for the feedback...i'm kind of stuck with it the way it is though cause i rendered it at school and 1) that's currently the only computer capable of rendering 3D that I have access to and 2) it's 3D rendering capabilities pretty much suck...I'm hoping to purchase a machine really soon, and then maybe re-render the whole thing the way I ultimately want it to look...but as it is, it took about 25 hours to render 900 frames...and I had to go through that excruciating experience about three times before the camera paths and everything else were close to what I actually wanted....so, anyway, yeah...I'll wait til I've got the right equipment before I attempt anymore modifications

and, as far as shadowy ripples being cast, there actually is a caustic being projected from above...I think it's just hard to see in a still...

thanks again for looking though

if/when I rework it, I'll repost...
