View Full Version : White caps on water?

02-06-2008, 02:03 PM
Hello, I was wondering how I could go about making white caps in a water scene I have. Im using Vray and I could have sworn there was a certain material that would change colors depending on height parameters but I cant remember. Heres an image of the scene

Thank You,

Asuming you used some procedural map and displacement to create the surface of the water you have height map right there, just use it in your diffuse map.

You could also set up a gradient (world z axis) incase you don't have access to the height map.

This one? 3D World 101 at http://www.3dworldmag.com/page/3dworld?entry=3d_world_101_now_on

Bercon could you be a little more specific please Im kinda ignorant to the material editor and the available maps. I have a noise map in the displacement slot and a falloff map in the reflections slot.........But I dunno why =(
