View Full Version : tooth shader and sss

12 December 2010, 03:38 PM
hi, short question,

if i look at my yellow teeth, then i can see a translucent behaviour on top of my teeth.
With the help of mental ray mia sss, i get this effect, but only if i use a backlight without shadows. now i have the translucent effect but it looks like a lamp in the mouth hole.
is there another way to get this translucent effect? If i only lighting from the front or from the side, i get not this translucent effect. But if i look to my teeth, then i get this translucent effect without a backlight ;)

oh and what´s really curious...the backscatter strength changes his strength heavily depending on the camera viewing angle or the camera zoom....if i change the viewing angle only a few percent, then i cant see the backscatter...hmmmm

and sorry for my english, i hope you can read what i want to say.....
