The Subsurface Color input is only enabled when the Shading Model property is set to Subsurface. This input allows you to add a color to your Material to simulate shifts in color when light passes through the surface. For instance, human characters might have a red subsurface color on their skin to simulate blood beneath the surface.

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
