I have been testing the new Blender 2.46 RC features. This version is really amazing in terms of fur creation and character animation.
This is a little test i finish in only a few hours of work with the new Blender features. It is a teddy bear model, animated with a mocap file from www.centralsource.com (http://www.centralsource.com/).
The rig was made with the "Create from Bone Heat" feature and the fur is only 1000 static particles!.
It is only a test i do not clean the mocap animation attached to the mesh yet, but i am impressed with the inital results :)
