My apologies if this has been covered before; I didn't find anything about it when I searched. I've seen some renders of "x-ray" images in Poser - is there a shader to create those textures, or is it a 'shop effect? I want to render an image of a character behind a screen that shows an x-ray image; I realize it will be a composite of 2 renders, but I'm just hoping one of them can be done in-camera rather than needing to paint the X-ray image into the scene.

Thanks!

 Ajax once made an X-Ray shader that might work - BUT IMO you'd still have to use the skeleton and then conform the character to the skeleton so you can put the effect on both. Otherwise it'll look like a ghost and not an x-ray :)

Like this (with Ajax's shader. Since it is a freebie and very simple I think it's OK to share the node setup) Apply the shader to everything in the scene, here it's Ryan's Conforming Skeleton with Ryan outside :) Of course you can add clothes as well and apply the shader to that, too.

 And now I'm wondering wether BB's Artistic Lens might be setup as the X-Ray screen itself.. I do not know enough of how it works, so I'm not sure, but it would be cool if it did work that way :)

That's perfect, TrekkieGrrrl! Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for posting the node; I'd heard that Ajax had this freebie, but couldn't find it when I searched on his name.

BTW, I was going to conform the skeleton; heck, wouldn't be much of an x-ray without that, right? :-)

I think I've missed something. What is BB's 'Artistic Lens'?... can anyone direct me to a suitable thread?

I would be interested in the freebie and the lens setup.

The lens can't do it. It would need to know the surface normal of the subject, but all it has is that of the lens itself.

 Ah OK. I had a feeling that I'd seen it do something akin to an x-ray but I wasn't sure if I was imagining things. Apparently, I was :)

Where's Ajax's X-Ray Shader? I can't find it, anywhere.

In the screen shot above. That's it.

L'effet XRay à appliquer dans poser 11 est génial. 1.- Sélectionnez votre personnage (Ryan/Body) 2.- Cliquez sur l'onglet "Material" dans le fenêtre Marérial 3.- Cliqué sur l'onglet "Advanced" 4.- Créez un noeud comme montré dans l'illustration plus haut (drag en drop de "Ambient_Value" vers bureau = Menu: New Node / Math / Edge_Blend 5.- Copiez tous les paramètres, comme montré dans l'illustration, dans les nœuds "Poser surface" & "Edge_Blend" 6.- Sélectionnez les deux nœuds (CTRL Clic nœuds) 7.- Copiez les deux noeuds 8.- Remplacez tous les nœuds de toutes les matières (Clic droit / Replace) (Object: Rayn - Marerial: Teeh, Skull, etc.) Voilà pour ceux qui n'ont pas compris.

The XRay effect to apply in Poser 11 is awesome. 1.- Select your character (Ryan / Body) 2.- Click on the "Material" tab in the Marial window 3.- Click on the "Advanced" tab 4.- Create a node as shown in the illustration above (drag drop from "Ambient_Value" to desktop = Menu: New Node / Math / Edge_Blend 5.- Copy all the parameters, as shown in the illustration, into the nodes "Poser surface" & "Edge_Blend" 6.- Select both nodes (CTRL Click nodes) 7.- Copy both nodes 8.- Replace all the nodes of all the subjects (Right click / Replace) (Object: Rayn - Marerial: Teeh, Skull, etc.) So much for those who have not understood
