I have to be missing something because I am unable to see the SSS area under diffuse in the surface tab.
So is there an SSS guide for dummies
SSS is not part of the Daz Studio Default Shader but part of HSS (Human Skin Shader), Uber Surface which ae both part of Daz Studio found in the Content Library Pane (NOT SMART CONTENT) under Daz Studio Formats > My Library > Shader Presets > omnifreaker >
WHen loading these shaders and you wnat to retain the original texture maps hold down Ctrl while double clicking on the presets, then for the Map Settings choose “Ignore”.
Besides the help icons found in the same place as the shaders there isn’t much in the way of diffinitive facts about what each channel does or how it works. But if you use Google to search you should come up with some information scatered here and there.
