A more directional ocean. I could eliminate some noise causing PFs, which I thought weren't active. Some more tweaking, a little more twist and shear, and some hits on the random seed button.

Powerful deep churning effect. Really good! I don't know how surfing waves work ( although I am sure there are mathematical slope illustrations in profound abundance)  Have you made one curl over yet? I know you parted the sea..... ;D

I see a great Pirates of the Caribbean parody coming ;)
Great work!


Did you already tests how the foam will look like in higher resolution?

 ;D ;D ;D No, not yet. Maybe there's a way to use the vortex shader for some upper parts?

Yes, I did some tests. From this distance it looks quite good, but I rather wouldn't get closer... ;)

Actually not too many people here seem to be interested in the animation feature. I guess a lot of those are a bit scared of spending time rendering hundreds of images. But I can tell you, it's worth it. It's an incredible moment to finally see your imagery in the fourth dimension. You can render out low res lean versions of your animation for let's say thirty images, which doesn't take too long, and you'll see, if everything is OK, before you start rendering the final images. There are free apps to make a movie out of it, so if you have a TG version with animation, use it. It's fun!!

If I remember correctly from school, TG renders still frames, which is always nonsense to compile. Large TIFF images and compositing is slow. TG should be doing this on a per-frame basis and outputting a lossless raw video format.

I output bmps and it takes about 30 seconds to composite in Blender 2.79. I think anim8tor used to output AVI or other formats, but never got to the mp4 stage.
