Short description of error
EEVEE SSS doesnt work.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

open provided file and turn on viewport live rendering (happens with f12 too), check out the strange SSS result. I've tried every option I can think of to find the cause, but no options seem to affect it.


turning off screen space reflections
removing volumes
tried all light types with shadows on and off
tried changing monkey material's roughness, diffuse (to black), specular, different SSS method (random walk, christensen-burley), ggx/multiscatter ggx
baking indirect lighting

can't think of anything else that might be affecting it?



Event Timeline

i can reproduce this issue on RC2 Opensuse linux, AMD FX8350 16G ram GTX690 Nvidia 340.34

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is due to settings and material setup.
The SSS radius is set too high for the scale of your object. Subsurface scattering samples needs to be changed for Eevee.

Thanks Roger Davis, user error indeed! :)
