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.
Oh wow I have missed a lot of posts lately that tiger looks great. I think I will never need to buy another hair product again releveing the issues that go with it, burnt in highlights, no bump maps, no proper movement morphs and long render times. Yep I will be in heaven when this comes out. I had planned on attempting another relaistic image, female this time over the Christmas period. I will wait until this comes out (whenever that may be) before starting it.
I might even do another old man this time with nose and ear hair etc.
But like others I can’t wait to use all my animals, finally.
