waterscape project

Hi there, I’ve been working on this project for a while and finally decided to clean it up. Unfortunately some boggling problems have come up with the textures that I have no idea how to figure out. The textures seem to be “banding”. They are supposed to look like ocean waves foam when they were working properly. You can see the textures in the rock are also banding. Does anybody know what’s going on here?


Take a look at a scenario I did a while ago. There is a really good tutorial on ocean waves out there…I looked…and cant find it now…But it seems like it would help you a lot. I learned a lot off it. Making anything to do with a cool ocean rendering seems really difficult…and it is a little complicated…don’t let Nodes scare you…and dive in…I’ll keep on looking for the link…
