Psunami is the popular water tool behind many feature films, TV shows and commercials, including Miramax’s movie The Aviator. Psunami generates precise 3D geometry of an ocean surface, then produces ultra-realistic ray-traced output that looks like real water. From flat pools to raging oceans, Psunami lets you animate gorgeous 3D oceanographic effects, and even places your camera underwater for the ultimate immersive effect.

Ultra-realistic output

Psunami uses Arete Image Software’s RenderWorld ray-tracing engine — the same renderer used in movies such as Titanic, The Truman Show, Cast Away and Pearl Harbor. With features like Swell, Wind, Air and Light Optics, Depth of Field and built-in image maps, your water effects will fool the experts.


Complete camera control

Fly your camera in 3D space above the water, on the water’s surface, or even below the water for the ultimate in realism. Psunami sets the tilt, pan, roll and elevation for waves and swells. Use Field of View to show surface detail or Bobbing Platform to activate a virtual floating camera.

Easy animation options

Psunami has sky and water features that heightens its realism. Hundreds of presets help you create a wide variety of realistic water environments. You can add in a custom sky, use Time Stretch to create slow-motion scenes, or animate Wind properties to quickly change the look of your waves.
