Specify Specific Guide to be Clumped in XGen


By default, clumping in xgen, at the lowest level, is defined by per guide. However, I want to go lower and that is to clump only on a specific guide. 
For instance, there are 5 guides (A,B,C,D,E). I want the to only clump at A or A and E. 

Is that possible to in Xgen? So far, I only see per guide (all guides) and random generation of clumping points. 

Thank you for your time. 

P.S. If you are suggesting to have the guides at separate description, I did that but the minimum guide for Xgen to work is two. So I get two clumps. I only need one.

in this case i would go with tube groom or multiple descriptions...

Hi oglu. 

Thanks for the response. 

RE: Multiple descriptions. As stated, that's what I did but again each description still needs two guides. 
RE: Tube Groom. I had this in mind, but if I had to change the hair shape it would be somewhat tedious to just manipulating it one curve. 

Basically, I just want to confirm the following if I'm at dead end so I can drop this method:

(1) Is it possible to specify guide to be clumped in Xgen? 
(2) Is it possible to just use one guide for Xgen? (Currently I can see it needs two for it to operate. )

I can't find much answer in the documentation. 

Thank you for your time.

paint a mask... or use the new interactive groom...
you could use the clump brush there...

Hi Oglu

Thanks for the response. So I guess (1) and (2) is not possible. 
Probably going ahead with masking or tube grooming. 

Thanks again!
