Transform your image to an underwater scene using the compositor


Blender Insight writes:

Have you ever tried to do an underwater scene in Blender and never reached the feeling that it's actually under water in your image? Your subs, divers and fishes all looks like they are in the air and not in the water?

For you I did this simple Blender 2.8 tutorial (the steps in the compositor works for 2.79 as well) on how you can use the compositor to change the most simple image in to an underwater "thing" :)

I also show how you can add particles in to the scene without making them merge in to each other (without transforming them to "rigid bodies").

Have a nice time :)

My real name is Joakim Tornhill, but most people know me as "Blender Insight"... the procedural node & material guy :). I love how Blender can turn a simple sphere in to a photo realistic cherry, orange, planet or football....without using any external sources like images at all. That is amazing! However, I can do other Blender stuff as well (been at it since 2012) and share my knowledge as much as I can on YouTube at:
