Hey,

I missed that specific request down in the middle when going back through the posts.

I would do it as two separate scenes as well. You'll need environment fog, particles, different lighting (there's a fake caustic lighting tut on ****** somewhere), different geom on the floor you wouldn't see from the top, etc....

Nah, you wouldn't need fake caustics for this. All he would need was a light or environment fog and a light mask for the water ripples. It's a pretty simple thing he's trying to do.

Stay tuned.

By fake caustics, I mean a ripple texture on the light and stuff.

There's a downloadable underwater scene setup/shader from Duncan Brinsmead called envWaterFog v1.0 over at highend3D in the shader secton. You can see a simple render I did with it here.

I accidentally figured out another way, all using Maya 6.0 built in tools ------>


Make a 3D container, then fill it

in properties under contents method..... make sure fuel, /// velocity and temperature are on off then density to gradient



now under density change it from default 0.500 to 0.200



now create an ocean (hold space----fluid effects---ocean----create ocean) after this select the ocean and delete it (were gonna steal the texture in Hypershader....)

now go back to your 3D container properties and open hypershader (ocean shader should be in there) in the 3D container properties open Surafece and change from volume render to Surface render and click on Soft Surface

Now open Color tab

midldle mouse drag the ocean shader from hypergraph into the little box beside selected color...

And now rezise the 3D container to whatever you need
this looks like water its seethrough up to a point and when you go under it makes this efect (if it is too dark it was my single lighting source, it is brighter on different computer screens...if needed i could repost brighter)
