Apply light to hair and fur but not the object?
show user profile  Fast_Learner
How do I apply, say, an omni-light to the hair of an object without lightning the object with it? I want to give more ambient light to the hair.

Maybe it will work this time;

hit 8 (env and effects dialog), select hair n fur, go down to where it says hair [buffer] (or something), and change buffer to "mr prim" ... no select your omni light, find "exclude" and exclude everything except the hair (( mental ray ))

aannndddd I just saw you posted this before but specified scanline. god damn it

is there a reason you insist on scanline?
