    I just saw the new aquaman movie. There are a lot of really great effects in the movie, but the main one I was interested in was how everything was underwater and how the hair moved as it would underwater. Do you know how one might make this effect? It can be used in space too.

    There was probably an entire department dedicated to making the wavy hair, it's one of those practices that many studios dread because of how tedious and difficult it can be! But it's perfectly possible to give a shot on your own  😀 

    My best guess is that they'll put those rubber swim-caps on top of the actors on-set. in 3D, they can then match the movement of a head-shaped model in a 3D animation, and have hair strands attached all over the scalp of the head model. After that, it's just a case of simulating this hair movement without any gravity applied!

     

    Thank you! I might try that out at one point. I know you guys made a space scene, which is something I love doing. How might one make a scene look underwater? At first, I took greenscreen footage at put in under a 3D ocean, but it was either invisible or too dark. I also tried putting a fractal noise layer as a surface layer with radial blurs, but the underwater portion wasn't looking very real. Do you know how I might be able to make a scene look underwater?
