This is a fantastic program. I did this in less than half hour and it rendered in less than 5 minutes. It will take some practice to get really good at it, but out of the box, the tutorials show the basics that are very easy to follow.
Installed without a hitch, and worked without any errors popping up.
Wondering if anyone has had a go at the fine hair that's all over our face? I did an attempt, but it was swallowed by one of the earlier beta's. Will have another go on the weekend.
Doable...but unless you are planning some extreme close ups, not advisable...even though the overall 'hit' is fairly light for using curve based hair, it's still a significant impact. The 'velvet' function of the Uber shaders will simulate that well enough for anything except extreme close ups...at less of a 'hit' to overall resources.
The same can be said about body hair, in general, too.
Now for close ups...wouldn't be a bad thing to have, in the toolbox....
That is an absolutely, nothing, meaningless BS warning...Avast has just gone the way of Symantec and instituted a 'reputation' based ranking system for file safety...what a fornicating crock of manure! (I predicted this weeks ago, when folks started having problems downloading files from their accounts here...I just didn't expect to see it this soon!)
Find a different AV, if you want to preserve your sanity...until their 'cache' of 'popular' files is populated...expect to get bombarded with that kind of waste product.
