Description

Psunami generates precise 3D geometry of an ocean surface, then produces ultra-realistic ray-traced output that looks like real water, from flat pools to raging high seas. Choose from hundreds of editable controls, and even place your camera underwater for the ultimate immersive effect. Psunami has been used in many feature films, television productions and commercials.

Ultra-realistic output

Psunami uses Arete Image Software’s RenderWorld ray-tracing engine — the same one used in movies such as Titanic, The Truman Show, Cast Away and Pearl Harbor. With features such as swell controls, air and light optics, wind, displacement mapping, depth of field control, reflection mapping, and tiling, your water effects will fool the experts.
Complete camera control

Psunami lets you fly your camera in 3D space above the water, on the water’s surface, or even below the water, for the ultimate in realism. Set the field of view to determine how much surface detail is visible.
