Since the initial thread  reached 100 pages, here is a new beginning.

I’d like to share a spectacular render done in Vue by Luca ( if you are curious check his gallery, lot of fantastic dino images there: http://www.renderosity.com/mod/gallery/browse.php?user_id=56904).
Luca styled the Deinonychus furs in Look at my Hair and exported those as .OBJ (260 mb each).
Render took 4 hours at 2560x1440, Global Illumination.

FREE PLAYER thread is here: http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/17802/

That’s a wonderful render!!  I have Vue but don’t get around to using it very much, due to the long render times.

Just got your amazing plugin yesterday, and the image below is my first attempt with it.  Really love the fur effect you can achieve within a few minutes of playing around with settings!  Used your short fur preset for the Mil Cat, slightly tweaked, with increased no of hairs (500,000, if I remember correctly).  Rendered in DS4.5 Pro, one UE2 light and two spotlights.  No postwork.  ‘Tis a very simple render, but I was pleased with how it turned out. smile  Thank you so much Alessandro for creating this must-have plugin!!

As Alex said in a previous post:  Seeing our toy being used is the greatest reward.

BTW, that cat render made me do a double take.  Very nicely laid out.

I exported the hair back into daz 3d and I get this error anytime I try to render the hair at the best quality.  If I render it at 3,2, or 1 quality the hair looks like crap and just a few lines here and there.  Am I doing something wrong?  Or how do I fix this?

Can you give more information on your error?

below 4 (full software) the “renderman” curves will not work.  Below the “full software” is OpenGL shading, which doesn’t understand Renderman curves.  If using the lower settings, you will need to export as an OBJ.

I’m having a weird problem. Yesterday I was able to load LAMH create some hair and save the scene. I was able to do this several times.
Today, I start up DS4.5 and nothing. I click on “create->new ‘look at my hair’ object and nothing. There is nothing in the log file either. I tried starting up Infinito and it came up just fine as did Reality. Anywhere I can look for the reason why it is not starting?

MacPro 5.1 dual quad core/64GB/dual 5780s
Mountain Lion 10.8.2


Found the LAMH log file ( Documents/DAZ 3D/Studio/lookatmyhairAM/logFile.txt)  and all it has are entries from yesterday

That *IS* a weird problem.  Which log file were you looking in?  If you would, please send me the log files from the following locations:

/Documents/DAZ 3D/Studio/lookatmyhairAM/logFile.txt
/Documents and Settings/<your name>/Application Data/DAZ 3D/Studio4/log.txt (XP)
/Users/<your name>/AppData/Roaming/DAZ 3D/Studio4/log.txt (Vista/Win7)

On the Activation Screen:

Leave the first line alone
Enter the Number from DAZ in line 2
connect to the web page listed on the activation screen and enter the 2 codes above (copy and paste will work)
You will be given a 3rd code.

Put this code into the 3rd Line.

Click on Activate.
