Trying to loop a hair cache in Maya 2012


The Situation:

I am animating a walk cycle for this character:

This text will be hidden

The two hair strands that hang in front of her face aren’t keyed, but use hair simulation. I simulated the hair to how I wanted it and created a hair cache for 7 of the 28 frames of the animation with the intention of looping it.

The Problem:

I don’t know how to create a loop from a hair cache. It creates a node with no attributes and no keys in the timeline.

The Specs:

I’m using and only have access to Maya 2012. Any solutions cannot include outside software.
