Lace curtain shader

In this article on my blog I documented a small shader to mimics the effect of a lace curtain or similar sheer fabrics. A littke bit like the effect of fesnel reflectance this shader is more transparent when seen head on than at a glancing angle but due to the geomery of threads in a fabric the behaviour is quite different from for example glass reflectance.

An example:

I created a second version that is based on a somewhat more realistic model of fabric fibers. You can read all about it in this article.

I think the result is more realistic, but of course that is a matter of taste :slight_smile:
