wave rigging tutorial

Hi all,
I wondered if anybody could point me to a wave rigging tutorial in 3ds max. I've been looking for 3 days.
Chris Harvey give some excellent information on this thread

I downloaded his max file.
It uses splines that use a morpher modifier, editable polys as control objects and a skin wrap modifier on the sea plane.

Its a bit beyond my level and I can't figure out how it all fits together, so if anybody knows of any online tutorials that explains this that would be great

many thanks

You did download the file? How so? I tried and the link is broken. If I could get the file maybe I could offer some help to you. As I saw, they rely on some progressive morphing and loft shapes to achieve the effect. Can you post the file here?

I tried downloading from that link but apparently I'm not able to do so. I took the file you posted, I'm gonna see what I can learn from it and give you some feedback.

Ok, the technique is actually pretty simple. Where did you got stuck so I can help you more specifically?
