SSS links for LightWave?

Hi all,

I know this topic has been covered over a thousand times but I was wondering if someone can provide sub-surface scattering techniques through Lightwave 9 through the node system.

I know of Worley's G2 plugin but want to grasp the built in method in LW 9.3.

Any replys are highly appreciated.

That's a tricky question.
First of all , you should tell us what SSS effect are you looking for? Is it gonna be a Wax, tomato, grape or human skin? Or SSS in general?I'm preety sure that you will find videotutorial posted over at Newtek forum by Matt about Sigma(Informative IMO, but you must search for it) or you can also buy The Lightwave 9 Texturing book which has some nice examples of SSS(should be really cheap at amazon).

Hope this helps somehow.

How silly of me on not being specific, sorry. I wanted to figure out SSS for human skin. I have displacement, bump, spec, and color maps generated from ZBrush pipelined into LW.

I will research with the information you provided. I really appreciate your response.

Thanks MM! By the way, your CG user name is cool.

Will return if I had no luck.

Best wishes to you fella,
