View Full Version : hair animation problem
02-19-2008, 05:45 PM
I have created hair for my characters but when I animate them the hair is not following properly at all. I created the hair using curves and once all in place I parented the curves to my head control so the hair would follow. This appears to be working in the viewport but when I render the hair is going infront of my character and in some cases behind. Does anyone know a workflow I can use to get this to work or is it not possible to animate hair created in this way in maya 2008.

I managed to fix the hair on 1 of the characters but don't seem to be able to get it to work on the others. When I parent my hair to the head control the translate nodes all get changed around even though the head control has all its translates set to zero. If I reset the transformations on the hair after this it goes down onto the characters body. Does anyone have any idea what is causing this and if it can be fixed. I also noticed on the character which I somehow got to work when she moves forward all the translates change as you would expect but if I select the hair they are still at zero but it has moved and renders in the perfect place. Not sure if this helps anyone know what is going on and what I need to do. Any ideas much appreciated.
have you cached the hair?
