hair and fur problem
show user profile  ariana
i have a problem with hair and fur. in style hair i activate collision on so that way the hair won't go inside the scalp but the option is active only for the guides and the hair it's still penetrating. is there any way i can make hairstyles without worring about loosing 50% of my hair inside the scalp?

edit: forget it
I just tested animation with spline guide hair from hair and fur and it is a total mess.

Yep, hair and fur is... crap. I've never got good results from it, and I've never been able to stop it crashing through the model.

I don't you use planes for the hair and then use an image of hair in .png as texture for those planes?

it will look cool if you figure it out..

herfst1: can you make me a suggestion instead of hair and fur? maybe a similar plugin working correctly?
Mark-White: thanks, i have already a polygonal mesh for the hair...i wanted to create something more realistic.
other suggestions?

try hair-farm. i think that is the name. a friend of mine were thinking of using it a while ago. I don't know if it's a free plugin. check it out.

1. turn hair random scaling right down to 0
2. turn all frizz/kinking to 0
3. dont comb your hair guides right on the surface of the scalp - h&f is not volumetric and doesn't understand wtf you're doing so put it on the surface and then pick it up slightly
4. separate hair segments from the ones far away so they dont tug on each other in the wrong way
5. success!

as crap an annoying as it is h&f is the best hair plugin you're going to find and will make the best looking hair. be prepared to move around hair guides one by one though and spend several days polishing your guides

Good guide, I'll give it a try. Never learned how to divide into segments, will have to look that one up.
