There are some minor “teething pains”... but the effort is going to be worth it, I think (^_^)d.

(for me, the installation went okay, it’s just that 3Delight + Studio are crashing instantly when I go to render a hairy object… Signor Alessandro is working with me right now to track the root cause…).

I think I’m in the same boat with you. I get Error with Render and then a Spinning busy pointer.

Okay, so I downloaded LAMH today, have been playing around with it for a couple of hours annnddd…..what am I doing wrong? :p

I have the density cranked up to maximum, it looks like a full head of hair in the LAMH plug-in but when rendered with Daz, I get this weird transparent fuzz.  Colours are applied.

It’s probably something really obvious raspberry Thanks for any help!

Edit: I can get it load properly as an .obj but the result is a bit hard and plastic. A transparency map would help with that but there’s no uv’s to work with…:p

saiyaness, I used one of the presets from Alessandro’s site (mainly for the growth area, totally redid the style) maybe try that for colour etc until you (and I) learn more.

Now thats some thick hair! lol

I’ve been using Galibaldi, the latest beta has been working beautifully on my computer… How are you finding LAMH? I cant afford it atm due to “Its that time a year lol”, but it looks pretty cool!

Here are some sample renders as I was getting a feel for the settings,  styling women’s hair is hard (unless you want it short) but hair for men.. thats alot easier..

Hi Saiyaness, are you talking about the short hair group or the long hair one? What you can do, is to check, in Studio, the Surface colors on each group; I have the feeling that the short hair group is gathering colors from the underlying Genesis model…

As soon as we’re done with collision detection, styling long hair will be much easier. smile

I think I’m in the same boat with you. I get Error with Render and then a Spinning busy pointer.

I don’t know if this has been already worked out, but don’t close LAMH or the render will crash. Also this limitation is being worked out, so that in the future, if you like you can close the plugin.

Count me in, sorta.  Wendy, thanks for opening this thread.  I have LAMH downloaded waiting for installation.  Got a crapload of stuff to do today with 2 boys and ISIL underfoot.  Think I’ll need some guaranteed uninterruptable time to tackle the installation.  And lots of coffee on hand.
