I remember a friend did procurement for a govt research centre and nvidia was trying to upsell them on datacentre edition cards (10x cost) because the licensing restrictions mean you can't use normal RTX if you're letting other people use your infrastructure.
so they created a combined org who would run the datacentre AND workloads that any other science org needed and just bought the consumer RTX.
yeah we've got nine fives of reliability
I realised I haven't run a discount on Unsafe Warnings in a long time, so for no particular reason at all it's 15% off everything from now until the end of Sunday (20th Nov). Enjoy.
for anyone interested, a water/sea shader like this is pretty simple in Blender.
for the surface i used a really deep blue, the important part is 0 roughness (to get the reflective quality.
the displacement to create the waves in the bottom half is mixing two noise shaders - one for the big waves and one for the choppy wind texture, and limit the upper end of the output to reduce the scale.
Props to Ian Thorpe on this, he's been a massive ally to the trans community and standing up for human rights.
