View Full Version : Volume stacking/Dialectric question

Simple question. I select a dialectric material for closed geometry. Do I turn on Double Sided? Or not?

Thank you. I've seen both answers before, but I'll take yours.

before volume stack was introduced you needed the double sided checked and some other nodes to get a proper setup, now with the volume stack you don't need it anymore. Just input the dielectric material into the material input in the node editor, that's it.

Yeah, the What's New manual is even less clear than it was before on this issue of the Volume Stack and how it relates to the new modeling and surface methods needed. I know how it works, but everytime I read the, documentation or lack there of, it sounds more complicated. I REALLY wish they would fix that! It's a major workflow change that was introduced in LW 9.3.
