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"

Is there a way to use sss with translucent materials?

I have some characters created, with subsurface scattering for skin, and looks good. I want to use this effect for hair, ¿There is a way to do this with alpha hair? ¿Or I need a high-poly mesh? ¿Is there a similar effect? Thanks.

Subsurface scattering is not really supported yet as a feature but it is something they have said they would like to add. I remember watching a twitch stream about the material workflow they used for the skin shader in paragon and they talked about it. You might be able to cheat with like a fresnel maybe? You'd have to mask it so it only appears on the edges you want it to affect.
