Trying to nail down the LEGO material

Post by Lights_and_Shadows » Sat May 23, 2020 10:57 pm

Hey folks, been a while :)

Still tackling my long-running LEGO passion project lol. idk if some settings were adjusted between updates in the past few months, but I for the life of me cannot seem to nail down a proper SSS effect for the bricks. Really noticed it when making the light blue (or Maersk blue) color. My version is lighter than the photo reference I am using here:
Swooshable Flickr photostream sample

Swooshable also provides RGB hexadecimal values for the colors, which I am using.

My version:

Node setup:

I figured out what I was trying to do, thanks to Sharly's tutorial from 2.79. Works wonderfully. :)
