Feathers: Anyone have any good methods on creating them?

I know a plane with a alpha channel texture might work but anyone know of different better methods

Using Max if that is any help :shrug:

A plane with alpha channel texture works perfectly. It just a question of knowing what's it used in; cinematics, game, etc...

Depending on the look your going for, you could use shag hair on a modified cylinder. That would look realistic, but will probably take forever to render. Unless you only need one feather.
