Create more realistic renders in Cinema 4D by learning how to use subsurface scattering.
- [Instructor] Welcome to another C4D weekly. … This week, we're going to be covering a 3D concept … called subsurface scattering and what it does. … Basically what subsurface scattering, or SSS, does … is allows light to penetrate and scatter through … a surface that is slightly transparent. … A great example of this effect is if you turn on … your phone's flashlight and place your finger over the … flash bulb, you're going to see that your finger turns … orange and is illuminated by that light. … So, that phenomenon, in 3D, is subsurface scattering. … What it does is adds a whole nother level of realism to … the objects you apply subsurface scattering to. … So let's go ahead and check out how … you can add it to your materials. … So here's my piece of cheese made with … the volume builder and volume mesher. … And basically what we're going to do is just check out … the current material I have applied. … So it's just your basic color channel … and a little bit of reflectance, … blurred reflection in the reflectance channel. …
