Simple Vray Leaf Texture

Hi guys!

I have what I hope is a simple question: I want to layer two leaves on top of each other and I want the light to be able to shine through them, so we get a bit of the shadow from one leaf behind the other. Does that make sense?

I don't want to use transparency, but I'd like light to be able to pass through one leaf to the other. Anyone know how I can achieve this in vray?

2 Sided Material

You need to use the Vray 2Side Material, which has a translucency which creates this effect

Unfortunately the vray manual is a bit poor and has little depth.

Have a look at Stuart Lynch"s

Cinema 4D Training Introducing VRay

which is excellent.

Pag 48/49. Lampshades are a good example of the effect you are describing.

this has good example scenes and is a great resource.

Hi John Reynolds

we have a free support forum where we help all users fast and in detail.

we can help you with all there, as user you have an account there already,
i show you there how to make perfect leaves with 2 sided material, with veines, glossy reflection, translucency and all if you want, it is very easy.

the vray 2 sided material makes very nice thinSSS translucency at great speed, notmuch slower than a normal diffuse material.
