Create a CGI Ocean Title w/ Advanced Volumetric Light Rays

This effect was a lot of fun to figure out, and I think it turned out pretty nicely.

In this tutorial we’ll start with a template from the Preset Marketplace: Ocean, and turn it into an underwater title sequence. I also cover:

  • Adding Auto Volumetrics and Gleam to create light rays
  • Using the new Energy type of Fractal Noise to add detail to the water
  • Grading the final piece

You can visit the Preset Marketplace to download the template by clicking the button below:
