Getting closer to your goal of creating something completely real looking in AVS then.

The real question is, how many FPS :P.

It looks really nice (what's the source for the ripples... cleverly chosen basis functions or sound?). The environment mapping seems fakey though.
Also, why render the sun with a DM when you could use better methods that don't suffer from ugly edges?

If you're rendering the whole thing in one DM, consider instead rendering the bottom half with one DM and rendering the top with more regular techniques: then you don't waste half your DM on a simple gradient .

The environment mapping is 100% correct. The basis is a water grid. With supersampling. And the sun is a Moving Particle in that picture, as the DM is just a plane sphere, with the plane being the water.

the sun looks very pixelized.. Thats the only problem that i can see.

You could also create a nice glare effect using some convo's

Now that's the most realistic thing in AVS I've ever seen, I guess you're not going to post the preset?

I'm sure if you played around with the Water Bump & some buffers you could recreate basically the same effect. Then again, it might not be exactly what you're going for.

Amazing. The water effect is excellent. But the sun is pixelated.

Darn, I can't think of anything to put here.

Hmm actually nemoorange the waterbump is pretty crappy... it doesn't refract properly, instead it simply distorts the pixels up-left or down-right.
