View Full Version : Hair Alpha Help

12 December 2010, 05:11 PM
I truly need some help here. Basically I have the comp setup for the beauty, occlusion and shadow elements but the hair alpha is mixing in the white background.

To give you a visual of what's going on I have included a screenshot. The middle viewer is how the beauty should look with the added shadow and occlusion.

The one to the right is with the white bleed in with the hair and the alpha to the left give's you an idea of how it looks.

I guess what I need help with is how to make a solid alpha to clear this mess up. The layers are rendered .iff format.

I found out what the issue was. This is my first go at comping hair and in this case I used the shave plugin.

To make sure you don't get transparent hair just set the shave group to no more than 1 pass in the attributes.
