Wave Generator

Wave Generator


A few years ago,

I started to write a wave generator tool for 3ds max with the help of my friend Philippe Jadoul.

Our main idea was to write a commercial tool with several fonctions, such as breacking waves, dynamics, foam and more.

Unfortunately, we had no time to finish it.

I received a lot of messages asking me if I would release it even it wasn't finished.

We decided to release it as an open alpha.

We do not provide any shader nor presets, you have to make your own.

We're currently not working on it.

You will find bugs.

Please read the comments before reporting a bug, it may be that someone asked it before and got an answer.


Feel free to copy/paste the errors messages you could have.

 Versions available: 2010 - 2014 

Warning 2014 version for 64 only!



Copy the right version into the "max\plugins" folder

copy the "maps" and "Scripts" into the "max" folder

I think it's the same problem Mr. Sami has encountered.

Thanks for your feedback, i'll stay tuned.
#5 Ruben 2014-11-03 23:34
yeah, don't know then.
If I have time, I will dl max and install it.
I switched to Houdini a couple of years ago

You mean the "Ocean Tools" button? I just tried it and it's giving me the same pop-up. I also performed a "reinstall" of the files but still nothing changes.

you should not have to run through the maxscript menu.

when you look at the parameters of your wave, you have a button to run the script

i wanted to test out your script but upon running it - Maxscript>Run Script>StartscrOcean - max spits out this rather unpleasant information - "-- No ""get""function for undefined", which results in no Wave Generator initialization. Any ideas why this is happening?

I'm running 3ds Max 2014 64 bit, copied all the folders to the right place, as well as dropped the 2014 64 bit version of the plugin into the plugins folder.

I hope there is a solution.

Thanks for your plugin and hope some day I find it build in in 3ds max 2016 :)

The tools menu won't generat?
The foam can't be generated and gave a pop up message?

How can I export the dislaced surface as a tiff dislpacement files and use it over another surface and use the foam too?

I am using 3ds max 2014
