Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video New ray-traced SSS shader, part of V-Ray 3.0 for 3ds Max Essential Training.
- Whilst the V-Ray Fast SSS2 material…isn't new to Version 3.0 of V-Ray,…there have been some behind-the-scenes…tweaks to it that are worth…quickly checking out in this video.…Now, seen here, if I just take a render,…we have a very simple setup,…with our dog's head statue sitting…on a shelf in direct sunlight.…With no GI systems enabled and…with just a default V-Ray material applied to it,…all we see from this side of the object is,…for the most part, a solid black silhouette.…Now, of course,…even in previous versions of V-Ray,…if we wanted to create the impression that…this object had been created from something…less dense than granite,…we could add a sub-surface scattering,…or SSS material to it,…in order to create light penetration…in the volume of the geometry,…with probably the best general…purpose choice for this being…the V-Ray Fast SSS2 material.…
One reason for this,…if I just open up the Material Editor…using the M-key and then…jump into the dog bust tab,…is the fact that the Fast SSS2 material…comes with this handy open running…
