Default VFX - Stormy Ocean

I started working on a stormy ocean project. Here's some early particle experiment of the crest mist effect. Let me know what do you think of the motion and behaviour of the particles.

Darn. I downloaded it, but it says I need something for Quicktime. This thing I need apparently isn't even available on the QT server of download. Oh well.

Darkware: It's compressed with DivX 5.02. You can get the codec here: http://www.divx.com/divx/

3djoe: Thanks. I'm not 100% happy with it though yet. There's just so many variables affecting everything

ereitz: Yes, I used some principles from the book...

I like the first one better
The second one seems to linger in the lower left of the screen to much.

It would depend though on the scene

just my 2 cents

Yeah, the lower left of the second isn't going to look like that in the final scene 'cause the mist is going to be emitted from the top of the crests rather than from a stationary location. I think I have all the necessary controls for the mist. Now I have to figure out how to create the actual ocean and how to emit the particles properly...
