Dynamic Oceans for Any Beaufort Scale
Triton produces real 3D waves with unprecedented realism and speed. This isn’t just another 2D water shader – it’s a 3D ocean simulation.
- GPGPU-Accelerated Wave Simulation using CUDA, OpenCL, and DirectX11 Compute Shaders
- Over 65,000 individual waves at over 500 frames per second
- Fresnel refraction and reflection
- Planar and environmental reflections
- Smooth coastline blending
- Breaking waves along shorelines
- Particle-based spray and foam
- Add swells from distant storms
- JONSWAP, Pierson-Moskowitz, and Phillips wave models.
- Handle Beaufort scales and Douglas Sea States 0-9
- Underwater “god rays” and visibility effects
Ship Wakes, Impacts, and More
Your water has stuff in it – no problem. Ships, helicopters, and projectiles can all disturb Triton’s water with 3D wakes, waves, and spray.
- 3D Kelvin wakes from ship bow and stern
- Propeller backwash / turbulent wake effects
- Particle-based spray at the bow and along the hull
- Helicopter rotor wash effects with 3D wave displacement
- 3D impact simulation from projectiles
- Tidal stream wakes from stationary objects
- Fast height queries for powering buoyancy models
- Volumetric decal effects that move with the water surface
