    On Maxsurf Pro (version ?) and Maxsurf/T V9.52 I am getting a different displacement when a horizontal above waterline deck (flat surface) is visible or hidden. I think the displacement with the deck hidden is correct. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Paul

    It might have something to do with surface normals... can you flip surface normal directions? I think that they're all supposed to be pointing outward...

    Just an idea...

    Cheers,

    Dave

    ...never mind.

    Just found the "surface use" buttons.
