Thanks to SoylentGreen over at BlenderArtists.org, we found out that it was my clip Sta and End that should have been resized to be closer to my model. Then, I decided to use ray shadows and the problem went away altogether. But, here is an updated video with SSS. Enjoy!

Well, I am slightly retarded (sorry, if that offends anyone)...I have been using a Spec map to have customized specularity for probably the last 10 or 15 versions of my model, but I just realized today that the MapTo:Spec:Var setting has been at zero. So, it hasn't been affecting the Spec at all. Anyway, I changed that, I adjusted the hardness, I upped the SSS scale by 3.5x and made the scattering color a bit more pink. I think it does wonders. Here's a fun render:



I'd like to re-render the most recent video I linked to with all these changes, but it will take a a fair amount of hours for that. I'll post it when I get it done. As always, comments and critiques welcome and encouraged! Thanks!

Thanks, guys! I'm rerendering the video as we speak, and I'll post it as an edit to this post when it gets done. I am at frame 133 of 300, and the last frame took 1 minute, 38 seconds to render at 640x480. I'll post it tomorrow! Have a great night, everybody!

Update:
Here's the video I promised. Nothing too spectacular. The more I look at it, the more I see I need to fix. Anyway, here goes!

Love the still render above, but was unable to open your videos. Either the mp4 or the avi above. What codec did you use?

Both were encoded directly through Blender, and I don't think I can remember what the settings were, but VLC should be able to open and display both videos. VLC can be found here: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

Let me know if you still have trouble!

Life happens. Months pass. Here's a quick update. I worked on it tonight, and the biggest change is that his mouth is no longer open in a goofy way. It is still slightly open, but it is much better...Enjoy!



A little defocus in post....
