Description:

Blender 2.75 Cycles Rendered at 1000 Samples

Hey guys! This is my latest node setup! I took a lot of time on this one, and really made it something I'm proud of. I have procedurally generated foam (set to low in this render, but easily turned up), and it DOES NOT need the ocean modifier, or any addons to generate the foam. It will calculate the high spots and add it, ONLY on the top of the water... Used the Geometry node quite a bit here :) Also, I have a ripple bump map I did if you have just a cube, and you want little ripples... And everything is pretty much grouped to allow it to make more sense... I believe I have over 40 nodes there, so, enjoy! :D

    By default when I used this shader it does work quite well but I'm noticing a lot of pink colours in it; could it be due to light reflecting off the surface?

    @MechanicOrga Yeah, this is a problem with the volume, and while I couldn't find any real fix, I find that if you change the hue to the opposite color, it will work just fine in most cases ;) Hope that helps. :D

    So how would one go about turning up the seafoam?
