Default beach

hi,

hopefully someone can help cos i dont know where to start!!

i wana make an small animation of a beach, and i dont know how i can animate waves on the shore..

i would imagine you will use wakes but when u set a collision object you just get ripples bouncing off it.

does anyone know how i can do it? or able to point me to a tut, cos i cant seem to find one!


thanks

Then you must turn on foam emission in the ocean settings and for tutorials i would use google.
type in ocean and/or fluids in maya tutorial and i'm guessing you will find some tutorials and if not try a book about fluids.
Good luck
