    Oh my good god ...

    I may just have to go get a passport just so I can camp outside your residence so I can brandish a placard emblazoned with something witty and cutting about hair ... and SOON! :)

    He's being irritating and giving us really fuzzy answers.

    Naaa that just a lack of hair conditioner that's why AA is fuzzy on the price.And really how could he give us a price when he's still working on it.

    3D painting is obviously working on each model, regardless it being a figure, a prop, a Studio primitive, an imported .obj...

    And what if we could use it not only to define density/cut maps, but also to define hair colors, length and other properties.
    Mmmmhhhhh... sexy...

    You mean one map for each property? It would make things pretty easy as you could pinpoint with great accuracy what the fur, errr, I meant, the hair would look like.

    Hmmm. On the subject of fur, mapping, and I can't remember if I've asked these two questions before:

    Some fur is multicolour right down at the hair level - one hair might start off blonde at the tip and darken up the shaft (or vice versa). Heck people's hair can do that, and without hair dye either - sun can bleach the tips. Australian aboriginal hair is particularly prone to it, it's very distinctive.
    And of course some animal hairs are banded - alternating dark light dark light dark light. Banding combined with the correct length gives very distinct fur patterns.

    Can we do that in V1?

    The other question: overlapping hair zones - can we have two different kinds of hair occupying the same mesh? Soft fluffy light-coloured undercoat vs long stiff dark guard-hairs for example. Most mammals have dual layer fur like this, although there are variations.

    I think you could apply two instances of hair with one long stiff vs a thick shorter undercoat. If it's used as Renderman splines, then it will load easily. It's a bit different if you convert to OBJ's...

    I do remember when Alex was at 'Rosity' he mentioned that you can shade the tip and root differently iirc...

    Exactly. Even if in V1 I'll probably code only density/cut maps.

    You can set a global root and tip color. So, if your hair have red roots and green tips, the hair strand color will smoothly interpolate through those. There is no shader (but could do that sometime) that allows to alternate multiple colors on a single hair. Even if I don't see this as a top priority.
    You can indeed have overlapping hair zones. You can create more shave groups on the same follicle area, and have each of those groups use different properties, shape and colors.

    SUPER BIG QUESTION!!! What does the release of DS4.5Pro FULL do to this plugin? Are we now in limbo until it gets updated or do we roll back to DS4Pro if we want it?

    The current beta is actually being built on 4.5 final SDK.

    Studio 4.5 Pro just went live so the SDK should follow soonish from what I was able to read from Rob.

    Looks like the SDK is live already: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/daz-studio-4-5-sdk

    Because those loose bits of hair make us itch. We're not criticizing your style, we just want you to make some short cuts and shave some time off the delivery of your hair, that's all. :cheese:

    (sorry if those puns sounded a bit cutting.)

    Hi Alessandro,

    I'm looking forward to this great tool and I hope (like all the others here) that you will release it soon (in the closest meaning of this word).

    Maybe you remember that I've requested a British Guardian Bear fur Hat, as you'ved released "Ursus Arctos" and I was totally impresed from the realistic fur (which was a sensation at the time of the release, that was unfortunately not as appreciated as it deserved it.

    Could i now just add a simple geometric cylinder on M5's hat and add your "hair" to this cylinder to create this kind of Guard Hat????
