My first render in Vue 8! I started this in 6 as an experiment to see if I could get good splash/wet effects. Unfortunately, my first attempts weren't so successful. I ended up buying Monsoon's Sea vue and as I was getting ready to buy Skinvue6 received a $100 dollar off deal to upgrade Vue. When I found out that 8 had metaseas, I decided to bite the bullet. While I'm not entirley convinced that the metasea dael is better than Monsoon's fix, which was to use terrains as water; I found the newer volumetric atmospheres did a much better job of keeping my spray effect. I did that with a combination of some Seavue objects and a metacloud layer I placed around the two creatures. Then I disabled anti-aliasing on them to keep that rough "particle" look. After all that work, I still ended up having to do some postwork for the drips etc., which I'm not entirely happy with. Anyway, here it is. I can't find the read me for the train and bridge which I acquired at ShareCG. It was a great model that only required a bit of scaling on the train and a bit of dirtying up textures for a more realistic look. As soon as I can find who did this model, I'll leave credit. In the meantime, if anybody knows who did it, please make mention of it or drop me a line so I can give due credit.
