Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Water material problem

Hello, I have this issue with my water materia, dont know how to explain it. is like a depth fade problem, but its almost imposible to set. I used VaOcean as the base material but the problem is that those materials are not translucent, so I used this tutorial to give it the opacy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPmRV1Z9ikY

I got a really huge scenario with islands, the ocean is very important so if you guys can give a hand with this water material would be really helpfull.

It appears to be more related to your Fresnel. I'd tweak the Fresnel settings a LOT until you find what gives you the look you want. There's 2 numerical value inputs to the Fresnel - Exponent and Base Fraction. Tinker a bit with both values until you get a strong understanding of what they both do (they're sort of inter-dependent you'll find).

Depth Fade can also be heavily impacted by high values with Refraction as well. I'd consider turning off Refraction input temporarily to sort things out with the Depth Fade settings. This is some water I've done.
