I have a P2.8HT PC with 2GB Ram, and a GeForce 7800GS Graphics Card.
I notice if I add hair to a basic sphere, then set Hairs per CM to 42, workspace navigation hangs and/or crawls. I assume the tip here is to enable the Hair Display / Show Every option and set it to say 100. What of the Ram and Speed management tab? Any best settings here?
EDIT: I imported a simple Lightwave mesh shaped like a W - applied hair, set the Show Every to 4000 and the hairs per CM to 23 - now I cannot navigate the workspace - freezes, unuseable!
Any other ideas / tips appreciated
