Thanks for the link.

This one has some more maps and the sss maps are good for experiments.
Unfortunately the reflection and specular maps do not work well for TG.
Inverted roughness or not,doesn't give the desired results I'm afraid.
And there are not enough slots for every map in TG.
So we need a different approach,I assume.

Sub Surface Scattering is a natural effect so I'm hoping it gets implemented at some point. Sure would make things like quartz crystal and ice a much simpler trip to take.

Its a shame that the commercial licenses there are so high. There is still a lot of work to do on any of the models if you want to use them in any sort of original way. And I don't really understand why they come in poses. Unless they are all already rigged and weighted? Having them in anything other than a "T" pose limits their uses a lot.

They do look good though. I almost bought a few. But I was scarred off by the real cost. Hundreds and hundreds of dollars each. I hope that they find a solution to make their money by volume rather than individual sales. And it would be good if they could have representation of the human form from adolescent to elderly with a few different models of each age range.

Still cool though :)

As far as I know they were originally intended to be used as reference models for artists.
And a T-pose wouldn't make much sense then.
