hi jeff,

many thanks for your help.  here's the passage that ended up misleading me.
 i am using poly's - and didn't bother to gen uv's based on this:

The point cloud file is based on surface ST coordinates, so it is not
necessary to regenerate it for a deforming surface. However, you need to
regenerate it if the topology of the shaded surface changes. Since the
point cloud is based on mantra’s inherent S and T coordinates, it is not
necessary to assign UVs to polygons for the point cloud to work.

..some simple hips that show SSS on static, deforming & displaced geo would
be worth a thousand words.  plus, it would be good for sesi to show (and
prove) that these features all work as shipped.  and would be great
pre-canned rescission tests.
