    Quite a few SSS shaders have the same issues with single-sided geometry and also the intersecting stuff too. A shame, as it must be possible to make a shader that doesn't have these limitations!

    I haven't reported it, but I'm told they're looking into some of the issues I've mentioned here.

    The nose is out of focus.

    I did some quick animation tests and there was some splotchy grain in areas (as with the eyeball), but how noticeable that is at higher quality settings remains to be seen.

    Actually I had to fiddle more with Simple Skin, and it still looked a bit plasticky. Sigma2 gives bumps a nicer volumetric appearance, and you can see the scatter colour in the transition from light to shade, which Simple Skin is a bit reluctant to produce. I was able to more closely approximate Arnold and V-Ray SSS with it as well. Curious to know in what way Skin and Simple Skin are superior though, besides working in VPR (and possibly absence of flicker).

    For this render? Sculptris and Krita (and for about 5 minutes, Blender).

    Can I ask what you used blender for Chris?

    I was testing the Sigma 2 shader, and it kept crashing on me at the end of my F9 render... randomly each time, but around the 2nd or 3rd render check. I thought it was due to Distant lights, but was finding it was doing it on area lights too. hard to say what was causing it.

    I haven't traced any crashes to Sigma2 so far - most of mine are from DP Meta Fit and Tension, and caustics (which I've been avoiding for now). Might be something different about your scene or model...?

    maybe check overlapping polys / 2 point polys / overlapping UVs / points / double-sided-on/off

    I might have got a bit carried away...



    Does anyone else get stuttery playback? If so I might have to go for a lower frame rate in future.

    Postmortem:

    Hair clearly has a mind of its own.
    Network rendering changes the F-Stop setting, limiting rendering to 1 PC.
    Limited region changes the appearance of Sigma 2, as does placing objects in front of it to mask sections out (very problematic when your workflow involves a lot of patch-up renders).
