Alessandro. If you are making presets, does this mean that I could add my own presets to a library for subsequent modification and reuse.

I was thinking of my own personal library but the obvious next step would be to have a ‘public’ library of presets that people generally could add to.

There will be a public library on LAMH web site where we’ll collect presets made by all the users that will like to share them. And of course you can override each preset, modify it and reuse it as you like.

Here is a quick test in Reality….  The hair is set to a custom metal shader.  2 lights used, 1 in front behind the camera and 1 on the top slightly to the rear.  The hair needs to be thinner when rendered with Lux.  I will through a few more things at it and post them later.

Thank you very much for sharing this render, I really like it and envy how you guys use and master Lux/Reality. I never had enough time to sit down and experiment with it.

I’ll provide you a thinner hair set smile

OK, I prepared the Big Mil Cat preset and as promised it will ship with the plugin.
It will include a short fur preset and some custom ones, as the siberian tiger here, which has some longer fur around the neck.

The renders here show a standard fur render, a “wet fur” look render (2nd image) where I used the clump effect, and the plain tiger without fur. 500000 hair, UE2, render time 5:35 minutes on my 8-core machine. Mid render settings.

I haven’t read through the entire thread but from skimming I assume that it will be easy/straightforward to create hair styles like these?

yes! very possible wink

this took about 5 min to make, i spent more time playing with materials than i did the actual styling xD

Wow!  I like this a lot..  A nice fluffy version, clump it up and you have a wet version.  Very nice.

Nice, but you need to think out side of the box…....  How about some nice faux fur seat covers for the old wore out Chevy.  Maybe a nice shag carpet in that dump apartment or mold on the leftover Pizza in the fridge. hehe!  There is so much potential here.

Thanks, I’m glad you like it. There is also another VERY important feature that has been recently added, and that will be disclosed only at release time. I believe it will be very much appreciated, so stay tuned!

Been eagerly watching developments for a while (and had this on my buy list).

Better and better!

The “wet look” fur - wow - another impressive feature!  I already have a project list.
