Hey, a nice thread for links. smile


It’s very rare for hair creators to enable lying down or hanging upside down, even those who otherwise have great morph support.  Buying a permanently upside down hair is not a good solution if you want hair for sequential art or to give consistency to a recurring character between renders.


I always wait until sales to buy hairs that are more than $10, but I would be happy to pay $20 up front for a nice-looking long hair (ideally without big dated bangs) that had morphs that would allow it to be used for a bigger variety of poses.  I think others would, too.  There’s an opportunity here, hair makers - if you actually did this it would be a must-buy for many, many users just because there’s so little like it.  That Neftis hair is the closest I’ve seen, and it’s too curly for most of my renders.

This is “Fire Goddess Hair” by Valea (http://www.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/fire-goddess-hair/81429). It’s on sale right now through the weekend, and I’m holdin’ out, hoping Rendo will issue a coupon Friday or Saturday to sweeten the deal (hint hint). Put this on a woman lying on her back (in the arms of Frankenstein’s Monster, for example), and it would go a long way towards addressing one of the looks I’m shooting for.

Interesting thread. I have also been on this quest. Since Fibremesh technology came out I have been trying to create a fibre that can handle any Genesis shape morph you throw at it. As some will know, fibremesh looks great BUT can get pretty ugly when applied to Genesis with extreme shapes.  However I believe I have solved that issue.. It is based off my ManFuzz fibre but the difference is that this one (code named - Genesis Universal Fibre) can be ultra thin and any length and still not break or triangulate when dialling up on different shapes. Here is what it looks like. It can be straight, bent or curly. The following example is just a 55k poly test set on Genesis. What this means is that I can now create any hair style and any morph for it, be it up, down , lying on the ground and the fibres will still look great. Also with this fibre you can adjust the thickness on the fly.

Zev - I’m buying once that hits the store. I’d rather pay a lot one time for variety and flexibility than pay a little bit many times for limited use.

EVERYONE doing hairs beards whatsoever, if it’s for a still iimage pose, not animation, the answer is quite simple :: Hexagon.
Send hair, figure, whatever object you want the hair to lye on to Hexagon using the hexagon bridge, tweak your hairstrands the way you wish over it, send bakc to DAZ.
Use hair as prop, not as morph, re-apply textures by copying them from the original hair for transparency.

Done.

Any clothes, or whatever, can be modelled and tweaked the similar way.

Cheers.

My ideas? Any hairstyle by Mairy/3Dream has tons of useful morphs to achieve flowing hair effects. There is also a freebie, Upside Down Hair, made by ParrotDolphin (I assume) on DA.
