Our rendering won't be very realistic if we don't add any fog to the underwater shot.…Let's take a look at the rendering that made. As you see here that's not terribly believable. …We need to add some fog here to make that feel like you know there's…some murk and the objects in the distance will be darker and maybe bluer.…Okay, to do that we will use a fluid container. We will go to the Dynamics…menu set in Fluid Effects>Create 3D Container. It's built here at the origin and we need to size it up.…
So let's go to the Attribute Editor, Ctrl+A. I'll set the X size to 600 units,…so it's just as wide as the SkyDome here.…The Y size, which is the height, I'll set to 100 units and the Z size 600 as well.…Now currently it's actually above and below the oceanPlane, as you can see here.…We'll just need to move it down. Since this is a 100 units tall we can move it…down to a Y-value of -50 and now it's ust right below that oceanPlane.…
Okay, so all of the work on this is actually shader work, because it's not in…
