How to visualize translucent shadows


(Willem Derks) #1

Hi,

I’m not much into rendering yet for a project I need to visualize a translucent material with shadows cast on the back side. I cannot seem to find a way in vanilla Rhino or Neon or … to render those translucent shadows.
Picture of what I need:

Inside of the object will get a shadow cast on it:

The backside should show this shadow yet it does not in Neon for example:

I suppose other renderers will do this, if so, which ones?

Any advice is appreciated.
Thanks
-Willem

You can do this with the Brazil advanced material set to Paper… Neon doesn’t support it though.
