I am doing update for the Hair to work in DS 4.5 tonight so tomorrow you can download it from my store and install in the DS4.5 by removing the 4.0 figure and materials from the folders before to avoid problems if you not more use 4.0 , both can’t be in the same folder it will be conflict .

I found the issue why there the geometry was not loaded , the beard and eyebrows was not made using fibers but manually , the long scalp hair was imported via GoZ and that does not work in DS4.5 after importing from 4.0 , beside the double ID problem that is easy for you to fix by saving the files again in your folder as 4.5 version , anything what was made using GoZ does not work , so Now I have to manually import new geometry and rig it in 4.5 to fix it. And that not only with that hair but mostly with everything , 4.5 does not like GoZ from 4.0 and anything that came from using this plugin ..  But good to know it was not me .
I found that if you use pure 4.5 setup and stuff it works brilliant without any issue , but some things from 4.0 affect 4.5 and even crash , the bug here is that people install new 4.5 over old 4.0 library and loading up products and genesis base that are not to good atlast some of them , that why I installed fresh one on another system where I never had any version of DS before and everything works like charm and I love new DS , so fast and quick with extra features that allow me to create better product . I hope everyone follow and update soon as it will be the right choice and I know not all plugin are working in the new version but the base prog is very good compared to 4.0 that is a pain for the content creators

They made already updates to the new GOZ with the DS 4.5 they will not update the old one as there was more as only this bug .. so go forward and use new GOZ that come with in 4.5 Pro and forget about the old ..

Yup, I always update.  I’m just concerned that any of the Bruno work I might have done might suffer.  I guess now that I know nothing to be done about it but hope that he’s going to be OK…..

Sal thanks for sharing , very cool , love the 1 one , the hair looks cool so the eyebrows and beard
cool work !
I am still reworking stuff as I found what was wrong in the 4.5 so give me a little time to remake the scalp hair for the new version as I need to do new setup ......

________.COMMERCIAL ______

if others don;t know or maybe got it already there is another new product in my store for Genesis called elastic shorts , it is a set but the other item is a surprise ..  so you get 2 for one at this moment ..

http://www.mec4d.com/store/index.php?_a=viewProd&productId=75

be careful !!! additional product images include mild nudity to show how the morph works , it is a very dynamic set
and so far number 1 in popularity for August

Cath

Late to the party but will this work with the DSON plugin? I have Studio 4.5 and can make my own Companion Files if there aren’t any available yet.

If you mean Neanderthal then yes you can get it already done for DSON on my website, DAZ store is still in process of updating all my products .
If you talk about the Unshaven Beard for Genesis then I can’t give you any answer , the product was made for DS 4.0 if DAZ updated it already I don;t know it is DAZ product not mine I just made it

I tested my Neanderthal in Poser and working very well and the beard follow the face movement , and expression without problems and render nice.
If Daz convert the unshaven to 4.5 it will works also but when they do that I don;t know, you should check the store and see

Can anyone tell me how to put over the chest hair without the hair poking through the clothes. Like for example a V-Neck,we the hair shows through the V but not through the actual shirt?

That is an issue with any and all such products - as well as those that have displacement maps.  Try this - using the Polygon Group Editor (Alt-Shift-G or vita Tools> menu), select the errant hairs (right-click and change selection Mode) and set them to not being visible (right-click and select Visibility option).

In a nutshell, you use the polygon groupe editor tool and make a lasso around the hair you do not want and click turn invisible.

The author of this product (MEC4D) left DAZ store recently (the products which were bought out by DAZ company are still in the store but all others are sold elsewhere). If you want to get support directly from her, you should go to her website (Google MEC4D, is easy to find) and contact her there.

Catharina is very cool. She got me going in HDRI with Poser via her fantastic tutorials. That and the best character skins in my runtime were made by her.
