Hello,

Longtime Waver, just taking my first steps in to nodes. I know. I know. I'm a little late to the party.

Trying to tackle nodes while also learning how to make some decent SSS. Can't make any sense of it. Got the skin node out and plugged material into the surface, but nothing is responding.

Been looking high and low for answers, and came across a couple of threads, but none answering my really basic and stupid questions. Ack.

I know Rebel Hill has some node tutorials online (for cost). Does anyone know of any free resources (besides the LW manual) that will briefly give me an introduction to the node editor, and using the skin node?

Thanks

D'OH!

"Edit nodes" box needs to be ticked ON after going into the node editor. That's ... kinda lame?

I haven't tried this myself, but looks interesting.
There's 4 parts and SSS is covered in part 3. It's LW9.
