View Full Version : Fur hates me!!

03 March 2011, 01:37 PM
Just tried to add fur to my finished character model and it only appeared on the palms of the hands and then I realised I hadn't sorted out the UV maps so I did all that...and it still doesn't work?

Fur is only appearing on half the model and not on the head or the feet or anything??

Any suggestions please?

What's the software and which method? "hair plugin" or alpha planes?

I'm using Maya 2011 and its just one of the fur presets, called mouse I think?

I'm by far an expert on fur, butI think the default Maya fur hates everyone. Digital tutors has a good basic tutorial that tends to work well for default planes. I've found that any type of complexity in the geometry makes it break with the artisan tool and is much easier to simply map rather than go through the pain of the artisan tool.

I've also had issues with fur appearing properly at times, but in 3ds max opposed to Maya.
