Skin Shading in Unity


So today we had a quick play around with the PreIntergrated Skin Shader in Unity. Using one of our older head scans as a test subject.

The shader its self is very easy to setup, simply load in the demo scene replace the head with what ever model you intend to use and copy the material over, then its simply a case replacing the maps and tweaking the settings to suit your model. You can have a look at the settings we used here



You can also download a the compiled scene and have a look yourself.
