A G-8 supersuit for Iray using emmisive lights.

Need an updated supersuit that takes advantage of emmisive lights so that the tech warriors have glowing suits and the mech warriors have their combat mask ... given the flexibility and multiple add on packs for the Genesis version.. a new G8 version should seriously rock..  I think the multiple add on packs and the massive flexiblity of the Genesis version brought forward to an updated version would really rock!

    I could be mistaken here, as I am NO expert...but could this not be achieved by using iRay's emissive shader on the material zone for portions of the suit that you wanted to glow?  I'd imagine it would take some serious fiddling and tweaking to get the effects that you want, but I'd imagine that you could make this work with the old SuperSuit.  Getting it to fit to G8 might be an exercise in frustration, though. ;)

    So yeah, a specifically G8 supersuit would be grand, but there's potential with what already exists.  I...think.   :)

    As Xandyr78 suggested - emmisive lighting can be applied to any surface - even as a map so you can make an emissive glow come from a single line down the side of a suit for example - you don't need the whole surface to glow (black areas on the map will not emit light, any others emit the colour they are).

    Are there any issues with fitting the Genesis supersuit to G8M? I have never tried.

    No... I haven't found any that I couldn't overcome.. Genesis supersuit has so many adjustment panels that it will pretty much work with any morph.. it's just a matter of pre IRAY materials that need to be updated for the most part.. Otherwise it works wonderfully and is still my favorite piece of clothing...

    Yes.. I've actually done this and its been a wildly successful look but I do believe its a lot better to have premade presets so I don't have to always get into the inner workings of the materials.. I can just apply a preset.
