I will outline what this tutorial is all about:

-How to create a nice water effect (sea)
-No plugins required
-Everyone can try this tutorial: intermediate or advanced Maxers, but also the beginners can try since I'm going to try to make it fairly understandable?

The first step for this tutorial is show you the final result so you can see right now if this is what you are looking for and decide whether to continue: sea_movie.avi

If you experience problems viewing the animation I'll show you a still image (can you imagine the waves moving? if not, get some beer and you will :-) )


Now if you are still reading I assume that you are ready so lets party!

Lets create the surface for the water, it will also have a little bit of animation for better results.- create a simple sphere, go to create panel and create the sphere, the radius will be: 12 meters and then turn the segments to 80.
Go to the modify panel and apply the FFD 2x2x2 modifier to the sphere and move the points so your scene looks like this:


Now go back again to the modify panel and get a Noise modifier, and change its values so they match this:
