hi.. this is my second time doing FX-Wars challenge
this time the goal is to craeate a simulation of a big wave hitting lighthouse..
i did a combination between modifier based wave and simulation based wave..
the simulation was done with "Realflow"
the mist done with "fumeFX"
the spray rendered with "krakatoa"
and all the rest rendered in 3dsMAX 9 with "vray"
and compositing was done with "aftereffects"
you can see the work in progress and render passes here: forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=139&t=764403
hope you'll enjoy it.
