Controlling Ocean Waves

Recommended Posts

is there any way to control Ocean surface that it can generate waves only at its last part like we see in real ocean (overall calm but waves in the end)

what comes to mind is more then one ocean surface. simply create a second one for the calm ocean with the same settings but less wind, then blend them in comp.

What would also work is to create a line on the side of the grid where you want the waves to be big, give it a attribute with the value 1 and give the grid the same attribute with the value 0.

Attribute transfer it with the fall off you want and multiplay the wind parameter with the new attribute. That should work as well.

Hope it helps,

Juri
