Okay, so after several days of experimenting I got something I like. I used a completely transparent (IORless, colorless) mesh mixed with an ordinary phong (with some tweaks to the exponent and IOR... I'll post the settings once I've refined it). I then put a slightly smaller milk shaped mesh emitte...

I'm trying to do it without any SSS, but it always turns out too dark. It doesn't seem like milk this should be this hard. lol SSS just takes way too long. I finally got rid of that polygon effect by using a different material found in another thread. I left it running for about 20 hours (triple cor...

I'm currently trying your idea of a blended material (at least, I think that's what you meant, I'm a bit of a beginner at this stuff). I'm myself digging in these general material concerns atm, I'll be fully operative when the Maya exporter will support that all (closing by, hopefully). So if you c...

Use of comic sans is a crime against humanity and is punishable by instant defenestration. +1 I think you might have too many scratches in your texture. The real scratches are fewer and farther apart, and more varied in severity. Also: I think your exponent overall is a bit too low. You can make ou...

I was having fun with the idea already, and it's fine work also. "Sincerly" ;) Hey a quick throw since you are at testing: see if milk can be approximated with an absorbing but ior-less medium, wrapped in a null+phong blend, or akin. Just 2 untested cents. Thank you very much. I'm currently trying ...

Yeah... I work in PNG a lot because Indigo outputs in it, and it supports transparency, and it's lossless. I'll make a point to upload in jpg in the future. I take my 10Mb down connection for granted, sometimes. :roll:

The Night Before Christmas...

This is a series of images I'm doing on gingerbread men uprising to kill santa (as he eats thousands of their kind every year). These are the plans that they've drawn up to kill him (done in GIMP) This is just something to demonstrate their hatred for Santa. (Blender, GIMP, and Indigo) This is their...

I might have just figured it out. I've got something that after 3 hours is starting to almost resemble milk. This is a very good sign in my opinion. If it works, I'll post the results and the texture here. I'll probably run it overnight... I need to get one of those new Core i7's so I can just do th...

If I'm using the material seen here http://www.indigorenderer.com/joomla/fo ... lk_175.png should I be getting these results? Or am I using the wrong material?

Yeah, rendering so much background for a test shot was pretty dumb, I realize. I used the matDB preview scene and I got the attached. I'm starting to think it's a bug? Maybe I should try Linux 32 or Windows 64 versions?

Alright, I'll let it render a bit longer. I didn't get that effect when I rendered it as just a normal mesh, so I'm guessing it's just an illusion and it will go away after a bit. If it's not gone after 3-4 hours, I'll post back... I may try using the preview scene, too.

It looks exactly like I forgot set smooth... but I didn't. That's what's confusing me. I didn't set a cauchy coeff... should I have?

Milk?

I'm trying to make a glass of milk. I used the settings seen here... http://www.indigorenderer.com/joomla/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1570&highlight=milk but after almost two hours on a triple core (almost 500spp) it's still wonky. It looks like smoothing isn't enabled and the whole thing is horribly disc...
