I’m having trouble finding hair that looks good in close-ups. Certain strands look like gauze or they are fuzzy at the ends. Others look like bent pieces of straw. They just end up looking fake in contrast with the realism of the Genesis V5/M5 figures. (see figure 1)
This is the best looking product that I have found: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/victoria-5-elite-ponytail
It looks different in preview mode than other hair (see figure 2).
So here are my questions:
1. Is there anything I can do to make my existing hair products render better close-up?
2. What is “FiberMesh” and “polygonal morphing” hair?
3. What makes V5 Elite Ponytail so much more realistic than the others?
4. How can I guarantee that the products I buy are going to look good when rendered close-up???
