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"

Under water lighting (Pool)

I'm trying to add lighting to a swimming pool. I have a directional light inside the pool with high intensity and using "OceanPlanes" for my water. But I can't get the ligtht to show up above the water surface. The light is clearly showing up on the pool walls but not in the water.

The first image is what I'm trying to achieve. What am I missing to get that kind of light distribution?
