can Maya produce a descent ocean surface?

i am trying to simulate a sea surface by using an ocean texture displacement and a mi_material applied to a plane.
to add the dine detail in weaves i added a fractal bump texture.Now it looks ok but it could me more accurate.
Duncan suggested to use the same ocean texture use for siplacement also for bump. He suggested to increase "num frequencie" and tune the "small wave lenght" height and peak to replace the nice fractal effect. I tried doing this without convincing results:

any ideas on how i can add an accurate ocean texture to bump to make it more accurate?

hi, thank you for your scene, i downloaded your scene anh try to render, but it takes so long time to render, 10 times longer than i use the default ocean shader.

you will have to tune the displacement

I've made decent oceans before using the oceanshader and fractals, simply mixing the outputs with another node or nodes before piping into the mia_material. I'll give your scene a shot and see if I can come up with anything helpful.

How do I reeeeeach these keeeeds??

This is what it looks like when you do what Duncan says, plus a dash of rocket sauce:

Scale is very, very, very important with the ocean shader. It's also important that your smaller waves are not too smooth or small (in height) when they're in the correct scale if you want this look.

As for that mystery, I think it's because Royterr had the numWaves parameter set to 50.

10-16 is usually the range happy oceans live in. At least it was when Bob Ross was painting oceans.

I think the rendertimes and calc times were more related to the "Smooth" interpolations in Roy's setup, after playing with his scene a bit. Obviously your setup looks just fine, though! I would have tried Smooth or Spline too, but now it makes a bit more sense...

I'm so glad someone gets South Park references

This is my little tips for use mia_material and render ocean
It's only with bumo, but the same use with displacement.

I cant download the file on megaupload. It says that the file "is not accessible" - somebody gets the same error message? Unfortunately the video you uploaded on youtube is at a very low quality :(

Yes indeed, it looks great now! Thank you for creating this tutorial, it was very interesting to watch! Whats odd is that it stops so suddenly. You were tweaking the foam and then it was cut off. I wonder why you did not show the final result with the foam.

Thank you and sorry but i'm translate your answer soon (for my problem with english ) My foam appears well.
