Double sided translucent paper

Post by filip » Sun Jun 28, 2020 12:27 am

Hi,

Is it possible to create a material for a paper (which has no thickness, just a plane) that has a different texture on each side and is translucent so you can see the texture on the other side? Like when looking at a piece of paper in front of a light you can see the text that's on the other side of the paper.

If not, is such a thing planned?

Thank you.

Here's an example scene: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=919&p=10199&hilit=p ... ent#p10199
There's currently no way to do this without adding thickness to the mesh in LuxCore, as far as I know.

Thank you for the answer.

The translucent materials look so good in LuxCore it would be great if this was supported too at some point to make them even more versatile. :)
