Hi,

You can of course access these paths of your layer in the AOV editor, or use LPEs to get custom paths, but if you want to do some tweaking before compositing, I think the closest node you can find is the Ray Switch (https://clarissewiki.com/5.0/ray-switch-texture.html).

Cheers,

thank you lucas but light path in blender can work more than ray switch.
we can create fake beer lambert law with ray switch, fake absorption transmission help to save render time and more controllable.
for example: imagine if we want to create this icy cliff shader with clarisse 4, how can control transmission?
