A bit of a grain issue in the atmo, but the colors are nice that's for sure, also if I may .. it doesn't look like the capsule is handling any of those waves at all. It's at straight vertical? Perhaps tilting it a bit as well as adding white caps on waves would make this more convincing. Keep them coming
Yeah. Dropped the quality of the atmosphere a bit too much. My first render was 5hrs in and had done about 8% (still getting my head round that trade off, nothing seemed overly high), so I aborted it and dropped the cloud quality. Evidently a bit too much. The capsule is tilted slightly but it was a trade off between it sitting too low in the water or seemingly riding on the tips of the waves. Never really done water before so will have to look into doing the foamy tips.
I think I should have added a bit more of the yellow color to the light on the capsule too thinking about it.
This took about 2hrs to render so, if I could get it at twice the quality for twice the time, I'd be satisfied, clouds murder my i5...
