View Full Version : Translucency effect

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could create this effect of looking through a translucent material in LW?

The issue that may cause a problem is that the light grey square is raised off of the background by about 50 cm. This means I can't use Sigma, as the text would have to run through the object for the effect to work.

This is a problem I keep running into and was hoping the new SSS nodes would solve the problem but I still can't get a convincing result.

Thanks

Why not just a simple refraction blur? I don't see why you even need nodes -

Well there you go, I would never have thought of that, works a treat.
