    Is anyone willing to share either an actual texture, tutorial, link etc. to help with this medical illustration style texture.

    Render time is a factor so I don’t want to light a glass texture. Not really sure how this look is achieved.

    Thanks.

    Time is not linear but rather an eternal now.

    this is an ancient way to do it, this was made in R8.5 but I do not know who to credit for these

    Keep in mind too things like luminence with a fresnel can be really cool but often it won’t show if the object is 100% transparent. Try bringing your white (the transparency amount) down to a 95 % gray and see if that helps.
    There’s also a couple of shaders in the legacy “extra” bundle that you can combine with transparency. Do a search for Danel or Mabel in the content browser and that will reveal where they are stored. (its not those two but I don’t recall the shader’s name, but it was part of the pack that included the two above)
