Question about paint effects?


#1

I’m trying paint effects to create hair for a Character I have created.

My computer is broken! no, I’m not sure why, but when I render out a still my paint effects are just black white and blue dots.

Is there a setting in render globals or is it something that I messed up in the attributes of the brush stroke?

Any suggestion would be appreciated

thanks

Hi!

i am having the same problem

this link helps with the theory:

http://www.noboundrees.com/yinako/tut/pfxhair/pfx_hair_design.htm

dowload this shelve for your hair

http://www.creativecow.net/articles/briggs_chad/maya_hair/shelf_hair.mel

create the curves ala the 1st link
use the brown hair near the area of the model suppose to have a hair

use the curves for control the stroke (just like the theory! select all curves and them the stroke)

Im still tiguring out how to do realistic hair movement, but i want to use the maya complete so cloth simulations is out of the answer… may be set driven keys on the curves cvs (or blend shapes)

Hope this helps u out!

with out seeing an image my 1st guess would be your stamp density in the brush is set to low
