View Full Version : Simple skin problem

11-17-2007, 07:28 PM
I'm having a problem with lightwave simple skin, maybe you can help me.
Its not working at all, the epidermal and subdermal parameters aren't producing any effect on the image.
This is my nodes setup: http://img117.imageshack.us/img117/1550/nodescb2.jpg
And this is what i get when i render: http://img214.imageshack.us/img214/9963/image1yl2.jpg
If i set epidermis visibility to 0% and subdermis to 100%, this is what i get: http://img132.imageshack.us/img132/6...percentmm7.jpg, the very same image as above.
If i set subdermis visibility to 0% and epidermis to 100%, this is what i get: http://img204.imageshack.us/img204/1...percentsm8.jpg, the very same image as above.
I am not new to subsurface scattering, i used it on 3d max, but i am new to lightwave, maybe i am forgetting to enable something somewhere.
Thank you.

do you have "ray trace transparency" turned on in render globals?

Try using the perspective camera as well

Also I guess you're using the latest version of lightwave (9.3) but if you're using 9.2 then you may need to turn on "double sided" in the surface properties.
I can't remember when that changed but you used to need to specify "double sided" for simple skin to work.

Thanks to everyone that replied, thanks to you i fixed the problem.
I enabled "ray trace transparency" and "double sided", now everything is working fine.
