Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Scalar Subsurface input handling inconsistent in 4.5

Whenever a scalar value is hooked up to a material property it is handled as a gray scale value. However in 4.5 a scalar value in the subsurface input is now handled as a color value with the scalar as the R intensity and zero for the G and B components.

As a result older materials are now rendered more red then they should be:

This applies to the Subsurface and Preintegrated skin shading models. The new Subsurface Profile works as expected.

Hey Arnage -

Thank you for the report. I was able to reproduce this internally and have made our engineers aware of the rendering discrepancy, TTP # 349734. I will keep you informed as we look into this issue.

Thank You Again -
