Ocean doam settings in Cryengine 5?

I'm really loving CryEngine, I just am getting started but am really confused how to adjust the ocean plane materials. I do see the Ocean settings within the Level Settings, but when I attempt to edit the ocean_default material, it tells me it is read only. Please help. I'm not trying to make a game but use Cry Engine for cinematography. Any info on that would be helpful too. Particularly I would like to export cameras as FBX animation if possible.

Ok, I figured it out, I needed to right click the material in the Material Editor and duplicate, then select that as the material to use.

Ok, another question: how do I make an item like a boat generate foam on the ocean? Is there as way to have a boat follow the rolling of the waves?

Thanks again!

Thanks. I'm trying to find a tutorial on adding basic physics but I'm not having any luck. Can you clue me in?

I am trying to link a boat model I imported to a RigidBodyEx that is correctly floating on the water. I tried linking the boat to the entity, and the entity to the boat, but no luck so far. I am testing while the game runs by clicking F5.

If you go to level settings, and down to ocean you can play with the ocean settings on there.

If you go to the Material settings for the ocean, you can also change the foam settings through that and other settings as well.
