Maya Hair Collisions Having No effect


I've been pulling my hair out (ahem) with this problem for ages and feel like I'm missing a fundamental ...

I've got a dynamic CV curve that's connected to a joint chain with an IK spline handle. The joint chain is bound to a simple cylinder and it's deforming dynamically when animated with the CV curve.

- Making the curve collide with any geometry has no effect at all.
- Collide constraints also have no effect.

I've checked that collide is on for the hair system. I've also set the collide width offset to -1000. The end goal is to add a dynamic tie to my character rig.

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd really appreciate it.

Many thanks

Hi, George!

Since your are using nHair, you need to select your cube, then go to> nDynamics > nMesh > Create Passive Collider. Also change your collide Width Offset to 1.

Collisions will work. : )
