Greetings Max users. After a while I have finally decided to make a release of Ornatrix Basic.
As you have read in the topic, it is a hair plugin for Max, and it is free for anyone as long as its used for non-profit reasons.
Please keep in mind that the plugin is Beta and shouldn’t not be taken as a stable version. This isn’t the final shape or form of Ornatrix, and could be considered as a proof of concept.
Here are some images from the alpha tests:
More images can be found on the site (see below).
Some of the features so far include:
- Combing, brushing, painting, cutting etc. of hair
- Real-time dynamics preview
- Both volumetric (voxel-based) and post-effect (scan conversion based) rendering
- Volumetric shadows
- Real-time render preview
- and many more
Ornatrix is partially supported under VRay, MR, FinalRender, and Brazil. Its rendering engine was built for scanline and thus would behave the best under it.
Anyway, check out the site for tutorials, forum, and download:
