We need fur and hair.
« on: January 07, 2008, 10:25:38 pm »

Yes I now there is probably already a way to make fur, hair, and feathers on anim8or but I think there should be something like this in anim8or. http://www.hamsterking.com/blender/particlehair.htm yes I am probably considered a noob on anim8or (ive only used it for 2 months) but something this easy or easier would be nice.

Well hair capabilities are very low right now with anim8or. The only hair thing for anim8or is a not so good plugin where you have too model the hair and it has a texture that looks like hair.
Right now with anim8or also rendering is very slow and not so so so so good. (Not really saying that it's bad but it dosn't have as many capabilities as like say 3ds.) so if you were to add hair or fur into the picture it would take 3 weeks to render a person.

anim8orblenderman that is not going to help the topic what so ever. Please say something that will help the other members and that is relevant to the topic.

Yes i agree hair qaulities are low, it would be good if we could do something about that. Thier are a few tutorials on the net about it though. I would upload one, except that the file size is too large. Steve should do something about the hair on anim8or to make "our" models look better and more realistic

Anim8or is perfectly capable of doing hair, just not particle hair.
Here's a great tutorial on hair written by Jeb for anim8or.

All we need is cloth simulation. Then we could use transmaps, and it would still look real.

Actually, I'm working a tutorial on clothing simulation right now, obviously not soft body physics, on how to use the sequence editor to fake it for you. But due to my other commitments, it's going to take a while :(

xalener, I'd give you all my teachers phone numbers so you can tell them that, but then I'd get the detention! :(
Anyway, I'm part way done the tutorial :), just to let you know: it's more of a: If you do things like this you can trick people into believing it's real, it's not true physics (but everyone probably figured that out)

I think an inbuild kind of grassgen in anim8or would be nice. Grassgen is wonderfull software, but is hard to handle and doesn't always work as good. It would be nice to have a feature like grassgen in anim8or which is easier to handle. Such a feature would be very helpfull to make things like hair and forests.

That would be a great idea for a inbuilt grassgen for anim8or kind of like a plug-in feature. I think that haveing a bunch of plugin features for anim8or but not the ones we have already plugins that take one program like grassgen and make it coheirent with anim8or.
