Fido Ocean Toolkit
We have implemented a system for generating photo realistic ocean surfaces, wakes and interaction with objects. The ocean toolkit was built with the artist in mind and the need for real time preview to produce results quick and easy . The ocean toolkit is tightly integrated directly into the procedural 3D animation package Houdini as several plug-ins and shaders that can be combined to create numerous ocean surface effects.
