Hold my hand through Saslite

I've never used saslite before and actually have no idea how to even get started with it.

Anyone feel like walking me through putting hair on some polygons?

Thanks, I love this forum.

I think that you problem is that you are not adding the pixel filter (Scene effects).

Just play aroud with the settings, It's very easy to use but without the pixel filter you can't see the effect

Ok, no prob
Just load an object into layout.
select the object and press p (item properties), go to the deformations tab and add the saslite plug under add displacement.


To acces the settings just doble click over saslite

Then go to Scene>Image process>add pixel filter and add Saslite

render that, you should get some fur, and the you can play around with the settings

tha manual has a big section on saslite that will get you going no problem. I suggest you read it, that is if you have the manuals...

In Image Editor (processing tab) the add filter pulldown is inactive, any ideas why that is?

bahgh! Still no fur. I loaded the saslite plugin but the other one isn't in the list. I reloaded all my plugs but still no joy.... I must be missing something....

You're way off. Try using the "image process" tab to add the saslite pixel filter plugin. Not the "Image Editor".

Download the pdf manual from the newtek ftp site, it's free.

Lets back track:

-Load object
-Object props>deformations>add displacement saslite (checked default settings)
-Scene>image editor>.........NO, IM RETARDED! Image processing not editor.......

*the retard dives back in....*

OH MAN! Yeah I got fur on my simple test object, but when I go to render my good model my comp tells me that my object has too many points for the "lite" version to handle. Tells me I should buy sasquatch full..... its like $400 huh? I think not....

I'll get around it one way or another.
