Have you used both ways mhcannon ? I wandered how they stacked up.. the fake SSS mentioned there I don't think will work well for human skin but for thinks like wax it could be great . maybe faster..
Haven't tried the MISSS yet. This (and other threads) have sparked my interest in wanting to see what all the fuss is about regarding SSS. I have downloaded the shaders, and time permitting, I'll try it this weekend.
I have played the simulated and does a fair job of simulate nonorganic translucent material such as wax (ok that's kind or organic but I trust you understand what I mean), plexiglass, cast resin, polymeres and acrylics. But I agree I don't think it would be a good skin effect.
I'm still just a modeler, so I'm still feeling my way around lighting, shaders, rigging, etc. But I'm not in a huge rush to learn everything at once.
