I don’t use lux anymore, but Octane doesn’t use buckets either. And everything needs to fit in Vram. so that’s my concern.

If you like to run a test, in a couple of days I might send you some test model hair that you can try.

I’ll try to do what I can, but obviously I can’t make dozen and dozen of presets and include those in the plugin without raising the price.

Well, darn.. there goes my request for the armpit and pubic presets for the Genesis Troll… :D

There will be a collection of presets for Genesis and most common figures, and also some animals, .

You mean like dog and cat presets?

I want the furred alligator!

Actually, rather than delaying the project too much with including a huge number of presets, it might be better to do the majority of presets as freebies via Rendo, ShareCg, etc.  Not only could they then serve as advertising for the base product, but I would imagine you’d get a lot of third-party contributions that would cover a lot of the lesser used figures… After all, while LAMH is going to be phenomenal for those working with the base Genesis and Gen 4 figures, it’s going to be a godsend for characters like Deco, TY2, etc.

While I was out, I’ve read a message posted by bigh that has been removed by the moderator.
For me there was no problem to leave it visible.

@bigh: there are 23 INFINITO tutorial movies on my YT channel. You’ve always been upset about these tutorials and I honestly don’t understand how many more movies I should have done to satisfy you.
I said I would have done, time allowing, another set of movies to show how I did the Avatar-like floating mountain. I said also that LAMH would have been probably ready in the beginning of September.
When I can’t comply with planned work, it’s not because “I don’t care of customers” as you said; it’s just because things often get more complicated than expected, and need more time and care than planned in the beginning. In the future I’ll be very careful with “promising” and scheduling releases, so that nobody will get upset.

So back to us bigh, if you feel that the plugin is useless, please ask a refund to DAZ and if there are issues with that, contact me to my email ( info at alessandromastronardi.com ) and I’ll refund it myself. Ok?

It’s ok bigh, no need to apologize. It’s just that I felt sorry that you could have such problems with it that you felt like I was not caring of customers. I’m only looking forward to settle things so that you can be happy with it.
