Make translucent curtains in cycles

I’m creating an interior in blender (gonna’ use cycles) but whenever i make curtains, set it to translucent, the light goes through it like it should, but the curtains turn the light the same color they are. Any help on curtain tutorials? thanks :smiley:

If i think of it, i wouldn’t expect anything else; cycles tend to reality slightly. Try to play with something like this setup. Default World with Sky texture outside,Sun - set size close to 0; Ambient occlusion- needs to be adjusted, room size in 1bu=1m. Curtain could be formed either manually or using cloth sim. One light emitting plane on ceiling where it is outside camera view. Hope helps.

It was a bit difficult to find a good tutorial on curtain in YouTube… Try this out It helped me.
