    Wow I go away for a while and all the examples on here are amazing, hopefully in the next couple of days I will get some new ones to add.

    Steve.

    Here is another quick Reality/Lux render. Hair is set to 80 Microns in size. Still to course for tight closeups but much better...
    I have not came up with an answer to the subdivision problem in Lux yet.

    How about cat fur in lux or octane. I actually don't think im going to use this much for human hair anyway, I'm more interested in getting more mileage out of my UNUSED daz animals. That need fur badly. I have both lux/reality and octane and wouldn't mind giving it a spin.

    Go back a page or two.... ;-)

    Edit: It's not Lux or octane but the results will be better IMHO.

    i saw the tiger, but I use octane almost exclusively now so that's why it's important to me. I had brought it up my interest in seeing the hair exported a few dozen pages ago actually.

    Since I rarely use Daz for rendering how things look when exported is the most important piece. Only reason I would consider buying.

    OK, I prepared the Big Mil Cat preset and as promised it will ship with the plugin.
    It will include a short fur preset and some custom ones, as the siberian tiger here, which has some longer fur around the neck.

    The renders here show a standard fur render, a "wet fur" look render (2nd image) where I used the clump effect, and the plain tiger without fur. 500000 hair, UE2, render time 5:35 minutes on my 8-core machine. Mid render settings.

    Oh wow I have missed a lot of posts lately that tiger looks great. I think I will never need to buy another hair product again releveing the issues that go with it, burnt in highlights, no bump maps, no proper movement morphs and long render times. Yep I will be in heaven when this comes out. I had planned on attempting another relaistic image, female this time over the Christmas period. I will wait until this comes out (whenever that may be) before starting it.

    I might even do another old man this time with nose and ear hair etc.

    But like others I can't wait to use all my animals, finally. :)

    I'm curious how LAMH can handle body hair. Will it look like a wool sweater or will it look like mange? Trying to make subtle body hair is a pain without using textures. It looks like it could even handle peach fuzz without the stick-like appearance of fibermesh.

    Please post some real life pictures as reference of what you'd like to accomplish.

    Hi bigh, just in time for XMas, if nothing catastrophic happens in the meantime.

    Hi bigh, just in time for XMas, if nothing catastrophic happens in the meantime.

    Er, given that it's currently taking multiple weeks/months for things to get through whatever arcane approval process DAZ has, does this mean it's going to go up for sale at Rendo or another site?

    Not that I care where I buy it, as long as I CAN buy it. ;)

    Yes I do, but unfortunately I can't disclose that until the very last moment. I hope you understand.
    All I can say that it will certainly cost less than 100 USD.

    I'm currently producing presets for most common figures, and as I have a little time I'll ask some friends to to some Lux renders, or maybe Octane as well, and post the results.
    Unfortunately, as much as I'd like to try Octane myself, they are still stuck on a OSX 32bit version (which is not going to work if you feed it with a large geometry set).

    Since it will be here at Daz I'll just impatiently wait and see. The Octane integrated plugin for Daz is also scheduled for right before Xmas so I need to save up my pennies and have some time reserved to tinker with new toys.

    The render was quite fast (less than 10 minutes), but you guys missed the subliminal message that laid in that image/post.
    I'm going to explain that in a bit.

    I posted the attached image saying "A scene completely created with Look at my Hair. Take a closer look at this...".

    When I said "completely" I meant that also the flowers ecosystem was deployed using LAMH. More precisely, replacing hair with prop instances.

    In next post I'll explain a little better how that works...

    No not the trunk :)
    The trunk actually served as the geometry to put "hair" on...

    AM is no good at keeping secrets. I saw that great tree pictures and already figured it out. It reminds me of when you showed off making hair in Infinito :)
