SSS issues for ice cream, C4D

ice-cream.jpgHi, please see attached; my shadow areas are grey in the strawberry and banana part of the ice cream-I have used, not shown here, the TM for color in SSS, but the SSS part is not reflective of the color, same results as here , any thoughts,? in other words, would love to get a nice pinkish glow in the crevices for the strawberry part, but I am stumped, I use C4D, thank you

And be sure to check the Export scale setting in the Arnold Render System Settings tab. 1cm should be the right value for realistic dimensions

Hi Lee, unfortunately my file sizes are way too big!-I used 4K maps created in Z brush, even after using a sphere instead of my ice cream model, just the TM is about 56 mgs. If there is an alternative way to share my file with you, I know that I would benefit greatly.Please let me know, I value your opinion, thank you, Craig

That should be fine. Just upload it somewhere so that I can look at it.

Did you try the changes that I recommended? Can you post the renders?

I would increase the sss_weight and play around with the sss_scale.

You should use randomwalk_v2 also.

If that doesn't help then upload a simplified scene somewhere and I will have a play.

Hi Lee, did you get my screenshot of my settings? are you suggesting that I increase the RGB settings of the SSS only ? thank you, Craig

Are you using sss_color?

I would increase the sss_scale for all of your shaders here.

Can you share your SSS settings?
