Underwater Caustics

Recommended Posts

Trying to figure out the best approach for creating an underwater caustics effect. Here is a tutorial using 3dmax and Mental Ray.

My primary problem is how to create the rippling "water surface" that the light travels through?

Thanks. Haven't progressed to creating oceans sims yet so was unaware of that shelf tool.

Any idea if the wave animation can be made to seamlessly loop?
