We test LAMH on a single core Windows XP machine with 1.5G of RAM.

Kendall

Would it be correct to assume this doesn’t run on a Mac?

LAMH runs perfectly on a Mac.  My partner does his development for LAMH on the Mac. grin

I decided to go with Taozen’s suggestion, so I bought both LAMH and Garibaldi - on a trial basis, mind you! Whichever one I like better before the 30-day period runs out, I’ll keep; the other goes back for a refund. So I’m going to put them both to the acid test and see how well they do on a Gibson-girl hairstyle.

Hey Joe, since it probably doesn’t come all the times with the readme (after the installation process), I’d like to remind (also to other new users of course) that we have a large collection of presets available on our LAMH blog site, at the following address: http://www.furrythings.com/presets/

I have both Plugins and I use them both…

Either one can do what I need done…

As I have said before the first one that comes out with a full Rig attached Basically to the Nodes will have the upper hand…Or automatically attach Morphs to the Hair when you go back and forth between stylings and DS…!

Can you say animatible hair….(WORD)

Thanks for the reminder!  I’ll start the proving-grounds tests sometime this weekend. (Not tomorrow, though; that’s reserved for Star Trek.)

I know who John Harrison really is, but I ain’t tellin’. wink  Can you check the manual PDF link on your features page? It’s not working for me. (EDIT: Strike that - it worked OK when I downloaded it instead of trying to open it right there.)

Sorry, please try again, it should work now (since I updated to latest WordPress version, I noticed some flaws).

I’ve used both when they were first released and unfortunately returned both because they kept crashing Daz, and even with the wonderful help from Kendall, still had the problem. Now I’m regretting it, because I downloaded the fantastic LAMH player the other day to see if it crashes and it works perfectly (about 95% of the time, unless I do something silly) and being able to tweak some of the presets would be a huge plus.

That being said, the Human Hair Shader is AWESOME guys!

The thing that attracted me to Garibaldi was that I thought the hair looked better. It also didn’t crash as much as LAMH. (But I never had much luck getting it to look good…) I found LAMH easier to use though.

Anyway, the LAMH presets look great straight out of the box. So much so I totally want it again. How long does the sale go for?

What is the difference between Garibaldi and LAMH anyway? Does one have more features than the other?

Having the hair not push through the skin would still be a huge plus.

Here’s a quick pic of the Dog preset on the Millennium Dog LE with the HHS applied. It’s probably not supposed to be used on fur, but I like it more.

The sale duration is controlled by DAZ, we have no idea how long it will last.

As for the differences, while both can do hair/fur, LAMH can be used for much more than just hair/fur.  The 1.0 version can be used for grass, vegetation, condensation, sweat, and much more.  The 1.06 version of the full plugin is imminent (now everyone knows one of the reasons for the delay) and as soon as we can get an “OK” from our testers, LAMH will do even more.

Select the area for the sweat as a follicle set.  Assign guide hairs.
Upon export to studio, select the option to use instances.
Select your favorite droplet prop. 
Set the number of “Export Hairs” sufficiently small for your area (this will take experimentation)
Export.  Set the shader for a liquid (or blood, or….)

Render.
