Hi Stuart,

So, are you not pursuing implementation of the Marschner model or the Zinke
model? Or is that in the pipeline as Brecht mentioned? The Sadeghi model is
very popular with artists and gives them great control over all the
components of the shader. I am familiar with the implementation of the dual
scattering model that Sadeghi et all have provided. It is definitely a big
help in understand dual scattering and I hope I get a chance to implement
it. Thanks for the details on the current implementation.
