I'd been experimenting with making a shear fabric all afternoon and thanks to help from Stacey and Dan, I found out how to make it work. This might not be the most exciting thing for anyone else, but I'm super stoked about it :) Yeah for Alpha Channels in Photoshop and for Stacey's awesome light rig!

Stacey's Default Light Rig

Hi All,

After learning this tip from the visiting lighter from Dreamworks, Stacey created a default light rig to use when testing/creating shaders.

It can be referenced into your scenes from this location:

S:\PROJECTS\Virtual Biology\Drafts\Art\Production\Virtual_Animations\VA_Production\Tasks\Lighting\Common\

It should give you a nice white base lighting to judge your shader work from.

Key 1.0 Dmap shadows ON
Rim .6
Fill .25
Bounce .25

There is a group node called "Prop_360" that you can drop you model in to render 100 frame turntable.

Thanks Stacey.
