Realistic Scrim Objects

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


Any advice on how to create a scrim object that really behaves like a scrim?  I.e. Opaque when lit directly from the front, but see through w/ light sources behind it?  The "scrim" setting for softgood seems to just create a semi-transparent object, which isn't really the same effect.

Have you tried any of the Sharkstooth Textures that are included in the Landru Design version of the tool?  They are based on scans of Rosebrand Sharkstooth Scrim instead of code-generated Textures.


See the link(s) in my sig...

I have not tried these.  Are they only available as a purchase through your site?


Yes - though, not stand-alone.  They're part of the SoftGoods 2 package.
