SSS for Blender from Xavier Ligey Lab? (SSS Suzanne Pics!)

Do we have a timeline for this? Will it be in 2.34? Is anyone else as into the idea of it as I am? If we get SSS, will we get caustics? (Or a better way to implement them?)

The site you post only has images… who is this, is the python code available, and where did you find out about it?

http://www.blenderman.org/

But it hardly has any info! I want the script! I want to try it! I was hoping someone else know more about it than I.

anogarlr - As far as I know no-one in bf-commiters knows of this, or at least no-one has talked about it. And since 2.34 just went into feature-freeze I’m sorry to say this probably won’t get in…

But, just an offside note, this seems like a python script, so it might not technically be in 2.34 (at least C codewise), but if it’s released early enough it may be bundled with it =)

And also, I actually thought this looked better than any of the Suzanne test =P

Funny how things like this just seem to pop out of thin air! One of the beautiful things about open source. I hope its for real.

This will be an amazing addition to Blender.

These have actualy been on blenderman for about 2 weeks. But yea they looks awesome :smiley:

it is a python script for fake SSS, still a WIP.
thanks;)

richie, maybe you can tell us something more about it? :wink: how it works, and when you’re going to share it with us… :wink:

anyways, keep working, always is great to see something new in blender :wink:

regards, neos

WIP or not, I’d still love to play with it if you’re willing to give up the Python.
