    There seem to be a few ways of creating SSS in lightwave now (Kappa, Kappa2, Omega, SSS, SSS2, Skin, Fast Skin, Sigma, Sigma2, Simple Skin).

    I'm after an SSS system that offers generalized...

    Cool. Thanks for the test. My understanding is that Modo always uses the maximum amount of AA samples on geometry edges. Given that they represent a small number of pixels generally, it seems like a...

    I've started my re-evaulation of LW and something that immediately strikes me is that the AA isn't as good at modo's when it comes to edge of geometry regions. I've got a simple orange sphere on a...

    Hi,

    Thanks. The video, whilst completely cool, probably wouldn't be the first to show AA issues. It's got motion blur and the movement is fast. I do quite a bit of medical work where there needs...
