I know this is the sort of thread that has been asked time and time, but does any body have any good tricks, tips, tuts for doing undersea scenes, specifically for the under surface parts for getting all that twinkling light distortion you see through the surface when looking at the sun, godrays and so on, the physical shape is easy enough with deformers like hot, but its the transparency of the surface that is tripping me up,
maybe any other elements you would use to sell the scene as believable? Stobbs under sea animation was great, and there was a small glimpse of what I mean by the sun effects near the start of his animation but unfortunately he seems not to have been active for some time to provide any tricks (weather he would be allowed to or not for that matter)
