Prebuilt binaries of the Maya Live Link plugin are available from the Maya Live Link Plugin Unreal Engine 4 GitHub repository.Once you download and extract the zip files, you will see binaries for Maya 2016-2019 for Windows.
Given the appropriate diffusion profiles, simulating subsurface scattering within skin reduces to the process of collecting all incoming light for each location on the surface and then spreading it around into neighboring locations based on the exact shapes of the profiles. We can think of each tiny region on a surface as simulating the laser dot experiment shown in Figure 14-9a. A very narrow patch of incoming light creates a larger, colored patch of outgoing light. Every region on the surface needs to do this and all the overlapping, colored patches sum to give a translucent appearance.
I have now upgraded the add-on for 2.8 beta and put it ready for download alongside the 2.7 version. You will be able to tell the 2.8 zip file version because it ends in 2.8! I'll be updating the documentation once 2.8 becomes the main Blender release.
A host of new features this time. If you already have the existing add-on, remove it under Blender User Preferences and download the new file from the same place on this website. It is now in a zip file. 59ce067264
