Would somebody who has or knows please confirm this. Is it just that there are no D/S mats included or does this hair really not work in D/S.

It does seem to be very definite that it is not compatible with DS, but I don’t have it so can’t be sure. It does seem very strange, as it is a HR 2

Just tried it in DS 3.1, and it seems to work allright though there are som artifacts where the hair meets the shoulders which I do not see in Poser. Don’t know if it can be fixed or if it is there in other versions of DS.

Those artifacts usually mean the transmaps have a line of non black pixels along an edge, you might need to use the tile offset in the surface tab to hide it.

Thank you very much everybody. Downloading…

I’ve encountered that type of edge situation before and so far it’s been an easy fix using an image editor to blacken/whiten as needed and it should be be okay then.

Yes, that seems to fix it. There are two entries of Silky Hair under Surfaces though, why is that?

Anyway, you must select each entry and then set Tiling>Vertical Offset to -0.010 on both (just click “-” once).
