Ocean shoreline for close up video ?

I need to make and render a looping video of the beach with more or less calm ocean. I’d probably use Ocean Sim for ocean itself, but I have no idea how to make shoreline. Something like this:

How can I achieve such thing ?


Bumpy bump?!

Using a fluid sim may take years… maybe with python, using the shallow waters equations, and then an animated displacement for more details… if we could use the xml read/write from OSL, it could be easy to make everything just with the displacement :(.

Care to elaborate ? I don’t understand how could I make those shallow water waves with foam as animated displacement :confused:

Maybe dynamic paint+ baked ocean sim + dipspace modifires?
