  1. this is my first post here, sorry if this has already been solved, i've got a speedtree alembic mesh with lots of leaves that don't have thickness, ive applied the principled shader and plugged an image for opacity and one for colour, but i want to add another one for translucency so that the sun light comes through the layers of leaves showing the veins and green-ness in the leaves, SSS would be the obvious answer but the leaves don't have thickness, and there's a lot of them (its a forest) is this possible with the principled shader? i know its relatively simple in MR, Arnold, redshift? thanks guys
  2. Hi, I'm having a ton of problem creating a realistic leaves for a personal project. Basically, what I'm having trouble with is getting good-looking translucency for my leaves. What I've tried: Custom shader with diffuse from both sides of leaves, Mantra surface with thin-film refraction (best results) and SpeedTree's shader. I haven't achieved anything I'm too happy with with any of these. So if you have any tips on how to deal with this, please fire away.
