+ A very useful plugin for 3d studio max, developed by Charles Hollemeersch. plugin adds a new geometry object which generates a statistically generated ocean wave surface. The plugin allows you to set parameters like wind direction and strength, required detailing to control the appearance of the sea surface. The plug-in uses “Tessendorf” method, the same method used to generate the ocean surface in movies like “Titanic”.... Do check H2Ocean demo, a Master’s Thesis project of Charles Hollemeersch, in which the same method is used to generate the ocean surface.
