View Full Version : mental ray ocean shader in max 9

04-15-2009, 05:28 AM
hey, whats up again? im not really big on 3rd party plugins but the mental ray ocean shader has produced some pretty slick fx as far as i have seen. i've produced amazingly realistic results with the dreamscape plugin but my company is not going to dump $1000 into a plugin right now. unfortunately i am still struggling with the utilization of the shader itself. i have placed noise in both min and max slots, changed the size and wavelength but i still cannot get any noticeable result. exactly how are other people setting up their shader trees when using the ocean shader? appreciate your input.

Do you need exactly the ocean? Try to search for some free plugins maybe...
It's a hard task unless you are a programmer.
