Things to Remember when connecting SSS to other Mental Ray nodes

Some people tend to forget that when you use the fast sss material with other shaders (ie: Nexus, mia_material_x, etc) that you NEED TO HOOK UP THE LIGHTMAP NODE to the other shader.

Here I've detailed 2 easy ways to hook the lightmap into the nodes.

After the connection is made you can visibly see the shader swatch update with the effects of the sss kicking in. (or just render and see)

Hope this helps!!
