I don't know if max supports this, but have you tried clip mapping?

"Clip mapping is the term used to describe using photographs or drawings as maps onto objects with an alpha channel. This creates the illusion of a detailed 3D object when in computer terms, all we have in the scene is one simple polygon."

-http://www.realsoft.com/realsoft/manual/material/clipmap.html

apply a feather texture+alpha to a plane and copy it, overlaying, also used for hair in games.


here (http://www.paultosca.com/varga_hair.html) is a great tutorial on how to do it with hair.

don't know of any specifically dealing with feathers but it should be a very similar process as hair.


P.S. i didn't know it was called Clip Mapping till just now either.
