Hello my friends!
I would like to ask how can I create white foam in a water simulation like the photos bellow....
Of course this has been done in a 3D software and specifically in Maya. I want to ask if something similar can be done entirely in After effects (in a smaller scale).
Using Red Giant Psunami for creating the water simulation is OK. But psunami doesn't support foam so it is not that realistic. Does anybody know of some plugins combination maby that can provide the foam effect?
Thank you very much!
There is almost never a reason to use a fluid simulation to create something like this from scratch.
Find a piece of footage with the waves/foam that you need and composite these elements into your shot.
What It said...
Realistic fluid simulations are 1, costly, and 2, take forever to render.
I'd Fake It with whatever you can come up with from fractal noise to stock footage and masking.
