No color on hair

Can someone tell me why the hair does not pickup up the material of the Hair material? Has me stumped. And how can I make the hairs as smooth as possible? They get a little angular late in the scene.. Thanks much for any help.

And how do you upload a scene file? When I drag and drop it goes away, and the only other option is Upload an Image..

When you generate geometry from hairs, you must assign a second (normal) material for the color. The color settings from the hair material will be ignored afaik.
The hairs need more subdivisions. It's the Segments slider in the Hairs tab.
You can upload projects by zipping them.

Thanks very much, but where do I put/assign the second color material?
And once I zip a scene file, can I just drag and drop that? I don;t see an Upload button for anything but an image...
Thanks again

You can add an second material to the hair object by dragging it on the object.

The upload has changed since the last time I've used it. I don't know if you can still upload projects.
