is there anyway to make a legit crashing wave like u would find on the beach like shore break.? or waves to animate a surfer? i've tweaked with lots of the ocean attributes and none seem to do what i want..
The ocean shader is based on displacementshaders, so that probably wont work, you could try Ncloth turn on liquid simulation and emit particles for the splashing water ( I am no expert in dynamics though so better wait for a better reply )
