Underwater Effects

Hi all,

Newbie to Panda3D here, looking for suggestions regarding underwater effects. I’m using Panda to create a 3D visualization of an autonomous submarine’s behavior (flight path). My simulation currently includes a sky dome that terminates at the water line, an animated water surface, and a sub-surface terrain. All the vehicle behavior plots well. Problem is, once the vehicle is under the water surface, the simulation lacks a realistic underwater view. I’ve tried adding another inverted skydome, but it still doesn’t really look good…

Any suggestions? Has anyone created anything similar to what I’ve described?

Thanks in advance!
