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"

How do I make realistic human skin shader?


I've been studying UE4 rendering. I'm in trouble.

Realtime character :Khaleesi Unreal engine 4

Please follow this youtube link.

I want to make my character skin shader(below pic) like Khaleesi character in youtube. I know it needs Diffuse map, Detailed normal map, Specular map, Roughness map even Height map. I can prepare every maps. but I don't know how to make Material node structure. Kindly UE4 offers 'Kite Demo' and 'Showdown VR Demo', 'Contents Example' but it is not enough to make realistic human skin.

Would you please let me know any information or tip about node structure? I can't find material nodes for study anymore.

Sorry for my bad english. alt text

I, for one, would LOVE some kind of information like this. We keep getting shown the awesome power of UE4 but we aren't getting tutorials based around the amazing things it can do. Get the indies in on more action by giving us some real direction on where to start.

Personally, I'd just like to get a character of the quality I just knocked together quickly and rendered in DAZ - screenshot supplied - and a proper pipeline of how to get said quality into the engine.

V4.11 talks about hair and stuff, but some tools to get meshes or models to strands or a mixture of the new tech would also be handy... alt text
