v01: Horo

Horo didn't know what to do with this. Since it was an experiment with a Flexpipe, a scheme to create bendable tubes with metaballs locked to a path David had figured out, Horo decided to take it for a tutorial.
So, Robin 7 went through quite some metamorphosis. The lighthouse is a free recource and was downloaded from The lighthouse is from http://www.free3d.de/start_nonflash.htm by Horo about a year ago and used by Horo in «Lost Periscope». The materials for rock and waves was taken from a material evaluation package by David (Advanced Shale and Combers from the DB_DAZpack1).

v04: David

David changed the materials around on the sea, and the terrains for rocks and sea. He also added a «white horses» terrain and a «spray» terrain to the mix to try and get it looking more like sea and less like a pond. And he added a light and a beam.

v05: Horo

Horo added a lit buoy. We decided, that this will be it. Horo made the 1200 x 1600 render in 70½ houers, David will do the gamma correction for the final.

A lighthouse in a stormy sea with a buoy. Strange — nice and elaborate as it may be, David and Horo are both not fully satisfied.
