Unhappy Fur problem

This is my first post But i have a problem happening with MAYA fur. I'm working on a character, and i'm using Renderman in MAYA 7 to render (I can not deviate from using anything else, also all files are in .tga format) The fur has 2 attribute maps for baldness and length. They are rendering fine, but the colors are not. Patches of fur will appear black or grey while other parts will appear normally. There is not a color map. This problem occurs in Renderman only. The colors come out correct in maya software. Also in Renderman the fur's direction is also reversed. Now we used maya software for a test, the project is being compiled in a renderman scene. Even our TD is stumped on this one. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
This is what I want it to look like (Maya software was used for this)

This is what I'm getting in renderman. Again thanks in advance.

did you try to bake fur map before each change ? is your map a perfect square size? (like 512x512....), use a tif map ...

try this and tell us if it's better.

I tried baking it, but the same problem exists. And I can't deviate from using .tga files either :/ But thanks for the suggestion!

the fur normals sems to be in wrong direction... check that maybe a painting fur attribute coulmd solve some problem with direction and so on...

What shader are you using on the fur?


You can have your characters photoreal, fast or cheap. Pick two.
