View Full Version : Not understanding "Thickness" node for gradient input

09-18-2014, 01:10 PM

I've used gradients a lot with a surface thickness input in the non-nodal regular Surface Editor. Trying to use gradients in the Nodal editor where I have to figure out how to get the same inputs I use to have in the Surface editor. To duplicate the old "Surface Thickness" input, I thought I would use "Thickness" node. But it's only parameters are Incidence Angle, not actual thickness. How do I get a real Surface Thickness parameter, where I can control the gradient based on the thickness of the surface, as an input to a Gradient node?

Thanks for any advice.
