    Okay, Dwayne, I'll bite... how did you do the water material?!? It's got to be along the lines of physically accurate glass or something, right? So that the light attenuates more as it goes through more material? What were your settings? I really like the effect.

    That'd be cool -- I've been trying to recreate the same effect with no luck. I can get close, but it doesn't have that "darker-as-it-gets-deeper" feel. And you nailed the colors, it looks just like oceanwater: greenish-blue, dark, but not dirty... just needs those fish, haha

    Hey all,

    It seems as though the directory where that original max file for that section render is now gone. I got our IT guy looking into it. I've rebuilt it as best as i could based on what i remember so that you guys could take a look at it. Keep in mind that MR is not my first renderer....meaning that i am a VRay guy first and an MR guy second...having said that i'll do what i can to help.

    All the settings are kind of low but the rendering of the new file looks like this:

    And the file for you guys to play with is here:

    http://www.dwayne-ellis.com/junk/water%20section-01.max

    Hope this helps!!!

    I've also got some ocean scenes that i've been working on for my demo reel that i might post up if i remember when i'm at home. I'll at least post some of the geometry files so that you guys can mess with your own shaders.

    Dwayne, you rock. My skills at water leave something to be desired (to say the least), but just looking at your scene has given me a lot of eureka moments. Thanks.
