check hit radius check and round segments or somthing in the environment dialog read about it in the manual it has great examples of what those two are for.
you might want to consider more hair but thinner strands.

good luck ;)

I suggest you to read this, you'll get a better understanding of OX.

Hey thanks everyone but I did exactly what was in the article thats why I dont understand it the tutorial went wel but not when I did the same for my characters hair and all ? I have thiner strands now but it still doesnt look good, I really dont understand how this can be, it just looks like a bunch of thin polygons now not a least bit like hair...

I wonder if it could be an Ornatrix/fRender "issue"? How about render the same scene with the Scanline renderer to verify the settings before switching over to Final Render.

Hey thanks, but nah I wished it was that to, but it doesnt matter which renderer I use, Mental Ray, Scanline, Vray, Final Render, it all does the same. Could it be that because I use a symmetry modifier on my head and havent collapsed the model that the hair placing gets all messed up on two sides of the model?

Try adding an Ox render settings-modifier and lower the global radius in it.

Hmm, well if it doesn't work with scanline it must be related to the settings your using. I'm assuming you've already viewed the videos I posted in the Ox thread here:

Maybe the scale is off on the scene your using now (making the hairs larger than they should be). Is the problem related to this particular scene? What if you start with a new empty scene and put hair on a sphere, what does that render look like?

Heya thanks allot for all the help dudes and dudettes greatly appreciated. Yes indeed when I do the sphere hair tutorial it looks perfect it looks absolutely great its something about my scene which messes up all the hair I dont know why Ive tried many things already and its driving me crazy this has to be fixed well today haha or else this model will go through it bald haha. Thanks for the video links im gonna see if they help which Im sure they will, THANKS !

Hi Jamaludin,

I'm pretty sure you just need to turn hair raidus hit testing on inside Ox fast raytracer (if thats indeed what you're using). Otherwise I'd check the scene scale to make sure that your scale is numerically stable (ie. not super-small). As was mentioned before, try adding render settings modifier and decreasing the thickness.

Hey Im gonna check that right away, but Im using the accurate ray tracer does it have similiar settings. And the scale where can I check that how big or small it is ? Thanks for all the help im pulling out my hair here haha, deadlines are gruwesome !
