View Full Version : SSS and Turtle

04 April 2006, 04:03 PM
I was trying this little tutorial from the site:

But how can I assign the shader to the object? If i put ilrBssrdfShader in the hypershade and drop it on the planet i loose the other material... So I will probably need to connect it somehow but how? :shrug:

The site does not offer much help it only says: Start by assigning the ilrBssrdf shaders to the objects, the s_planet shadernode to the polyobject p_planet and s_ring to p_ring. Then choose the Material Preset ketchup on both the ilrBssrdf shadernodes.

i'm not sure exactly what you're asking, but the Turtle shaders are integrated into Maya better than Mental Ray, so you don't have to run them through another shader or anything like that. just drop it on the object, and you're good to go.

maybe you culd clarify your question a bit?

Well the planet has a texture on it.. if i drop the shader on the planet it will render out gray :surprised Because it replaced the shader with the planet texture..

havent used turtle for a while.... but i suppose there should be some kind of color, unscattered color (or similar) where you can plug youre planet texture in....

Yes there is a color.. but the tutorial says i can just assign it to the planet and i would be ready to go :shrug:
