help with fur
show user profile  sully
hello, i've been having trouble with fur in max 9. my problem is that no matter what i put the modifier on, when i render it, i only get 1/4 of the model covered with fur. the rest is just bald mesh. i do understand that you have to wait for the total render and i have waited until the sound of the idiot bell goes off and i'm left looking at my reflection in the screen. thanks for any help.

Before you applied the modifier did you have some of the mesh selected futher down the stack ?

i've tried putting the hair/fur modifier on a sphere without even an edit mesh modifier and get the same results so i dont think its the selected mesh thats causing this. it's frustrating for sure.

it's your hair and fur modifier. theres a setting that's like apply to whole mesh or something.
