This Digital Hair tutorial ( by Aristomenis Tsirbas (of Menithings ( fame) shows one method of creating hair that's close to what Square used for their in-game Final Fantasy polygon hair. The tutorial uses Lightwave 6, but the method can be applied in any package.

Thanx everyone. I should have been more specific. I meant the cut scenes but the hair tut was more than welcome. I haven't found any maya specific tut,yet, still looking gunslingerblack.

Thanx again.
