Absolutely I want the logfile.  Any crash is unacceptable.  I’ll ask questions after I have a chance to digest/try to replicate the issues.

Two renders done by my friend Luca showing a Inostrancevia, an extinct carnivorous therapsid.
After styling the fur in LAMH, Luca exported the hair .OBJ and texture to Vue and rendered with Global Illumination.

Thanks, my friend Luca is working on a new render still done in Vue with an OBJ exported from LAMH.
I’m very curious what next furred dino will be… hopefully tomorrow… smile

Can this hair be exported and used in another program like Carrara?

Absolutely. Do keep in mind though that it would be an .obj file so you’d have to compose your scene in DS. Luckily Carrara 8.5 has no problem opening DSON files so workflow may be as simple as just saving a scene in DS and opening it in Carrara.

As some know, I am a Carraraist.  So let’s just say that Carrara isn’t completely outside the thought processes.  However, since Carrara has dynamic hair, LAMH is not targeting that area… yet.  grin  Also, Carrara doesn’t have a RiSpec renderer so using our current tech in Carrara won’t work directly.

Until then, the OBJ export will work fine in Carrara.

Bugs:
When I was finished with making changes to the group materials of the shave group I clicked on the “load to” (Button 4 at the top of the window) the window closes and the pop-up window comes up asking if I want to save and exit. I say yes and LAMH does something and then the materials window comes up again. On your videos this does not occur so is this a bug? And what do you need to see if you want to reproduce the event?

This happens to me as well.  I thought I was just doing something wrong.

What you guys mean exactly by “making changes to the group materials of the shave group” ? Do you mean changing the material setup for a group? Thanks

Could someone maybe post an example of an OBJ exported and rendered in Carrara?  I’m really curious now.

I apologize if this is a basic question that i should have grasped, but I am having a hard time making the hair look good in Studio, especially the animals. I have watched the tutorials (I wish there was a part two for the Mammoth), but i still am not getting it.

I have loaded the preset for the Big Cat, for example, and it looks good in LAMH. When I export it to Studio, I get a cat that looks like it just has the guide hairs. I’ve done the same for the mammoth presets. The few Genesis presets I have loaded look ok, so I am not sure where I am going wrong.

Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks

jthicks have you tried to increase the hair quantity under export options when you export?

After the change, the shavegroup-material window closes, then opens. Just wait a second and it will close automatically.
