View Full Version : shave and a haircut versus maya fur

08 August 2007, 09:30 PM
hello everyone.

i am about to begin a project involving many furry animals- lions, wolves, even mammoths.

at this point i am trying to figure out the best method for creating this fur.

is maya fur the best way to go? shave and a haircut seems more geared towards human hair- for finely detailed hairstyles etc.

i have done some tests and the render times seem significantly greater using shave and a haircut over maya fur.

also it seems easier to get the furry animal look using maya fur over shave and a hair cut...

does anyone know of any rendering/lighting/shadowing problems that may occur with either of these- shave or maya fur.

what about the maya hair system? could this perhaps be a better solution?

thank you very much.

i love this website
