Water Planes and Unreal 4.9
Currently, the "Water Planes" pack that's available for free in the Learn section is not able to be imported into any 4.9 projects.
When migrating the content through a 4.8 project, it looks much worse visually, even has some weird gaps from time to time in the moving texture. It also appears almost completely white when seen from a distance.
Is it possible to fix this? Or will the pack be upgraded to 4.9 in the near future?

It has yet to be updated for 4.9, however, there should be no issue with downloading and adding to a 4.9 project.
I did this earlier today doing a test for another question, and opening each map there were no errors thrown or seen for that matter.
To do this, you can click the Add To Project. It will open a new window with compatible 4.8/4.7 projects (depending on which version you've downloaded). Since you want to add this to a 4.9 project you can click the check box for show all projects and select the 4.9 project you want to add the Water Planes to.
Once added you can have a look in your project and open each map with the water included.
In your attached image above, you should compare the World Settings options and Sky Light options between your map and the ones included with the Water Planes. This looks like something in that area and not actually with the material or anything with the content that is included with the Water Planes.
I hope this helps.
