View Full Version : SSS making eyes socket glow

01 January 2004, 11:54 PM
Hi there,

I have tried doing sss, and I encountered a problem doing so. When I use sss on the skin, the eye socket area will glow, haha. The eye is behind the skin, and is white colour, so when i applied sss on the skin, it just show through a bit of the eyes, thus, the glowing effect.

Any way to solve this problem? Thanks!

You didn't mention what software you're in, but map the SSS so it is high in fleshy areas like cheeks, high in cartilage areas like lower nose and ears, but low in areas where bone is right below skin like the forehead, and adjust it lower for eyeballs if they glow.

I guess you could just use it as a sub-material in a mix and combine it with a mask.
