Very informative thread, thank you! Inspiring and reassuring to see the process behind such amazing renders. I started using UE4 a month ago, for a work in my firm and I'm still struggling with some concepts! I wish to see more article like this! Thibault (from France)

Digital Foundry has recently shared an amazing 30-minute study of the way water rendering has changed over the years. The two-part series starts with the early 90s and concludes the story with the possibilities of the last-gen consoles, starting with a look at 16-bit 2D raster tricks on Megadrive/Genesis, Super NES, NES and Game Boy. Actually, the first 3D games implemented water not as a mechanic but as a spectacle for a better and more beautiful experience.
