Creating Spherical world over ocean with Element 3D

Hi All!

I'm using an equirectangular sky image to texture an environment in E3D... the sky part works brilliantly, but I need an open ocean on the lower half. I've searched fairly extensively and can't seem to find something that works. Any suggestions, as it needs to be photorealistic. Thanks!

John

Maybe try just using a regular spherical map with ocean and sky, using the horizon plugin from trapcode/red giant.

Depending on your moves and how much you see, there's a couple of options out there.
Psunami is the ocean generator for AE that can allow for pretty realistic ocean simulation.

Then there's the Aqua Pack for FreeForm Pro, a series of preset projects (by yours truly) that use FF Pro to simulate water:
