I downloaded a water material from the maxwell website for a pool. But the pool looks very dark, I can't see the sun penetrating water material?

First, you might want to use the wizard in the mat editor for your water material. Otherwise, I don't know what the material settings are. Also, Maxwell needs a lot of rendering power to clear up pool caustics from the sun.

Thanks for the help Bub. Should i use a single plane or an actual solid for the material application?

I have an idea : like NASA uses people PC's to analize data from the stars to find ET (I think it's called SETTY or something), we should start a similar project that will use PC's when idle to calculate MXS scenes ... so all of us can have S.L. 33 !

any hints as to material setup in addition to using the wizard?
