You can create translucent surfaces using UberSurface shaders. The lamp below was rendered using this technique with an area light thrown in for general illumination.

Hmmm… interesting… I wonder if Tim Tams are the reason I can’t get Marzapan over Christmas anymore… :(

HOF, can you tell me what setting you used on the UberSurface?

In the image above, I just turned on Translucency and set it to 40%. The lighting was done using a point light and a spotlight pointing downwards (since the point light alone wasn’t giving me the light spread underneath the lamp). The lamp shade texture was used as a translucency map, as well as for the diffuse map.

A really good, chocolate cover ‘biscuit’ (cookie for those of us who speak American)...made in Australia.  They are rather popular there…and in a few other places, nearby.  They are available here, in the US, at Target stores…usually only over the winter months.

Not just really good…they are the best chocolate biscuit you have ever tasted. They are very big over here…but at the moment it’s so hot(yesterday was 39c) that chocolate melts in the cupboard so your more dedicated chocoholics store chocolate in the fridge. Wouldn’t have mentioned them but I got offered popcorn…lol

I had a friend in college, from Australia (and another one from NZ)...and he used to rave about them all the time.  He even shared once…

Just because something costs a lot, doesn’t mean it’s the best…

It just means it’s expensive.

Well, I did have to break out my bottle of Chivas in compensation…

HoF…yeah, that’s what I was talking about…except I’ve always done it balancing the Diffuse/Translucent numbers.  (I need to install that lamp pack that was a freebie a few weeks ago..I thought I had some other lamps installed, but can’t find them…this one has reversed normals, it looks like).
