So after pouring over the Samaritan documentation
, and seeing that they used Hair-Farm to generate splines for his hair, and then used some shader wizardry (ffffffucking wizards!!! >;E ) to make those splines turn into flat planes when the camera hits them. i decided to have a crack at it!
Hair-Farm is fantastic. it's a great plugin, it's easy to use and very fast... it puts max hair+fur to shame, it really does. but i cannot afford the $695 it costs for full functionality (the demo doesn't let you save a scene, or convert to splines etc).
so my question is this:
is there a reasonably priced alternative available anywhere? are there any decent scripts people could reccomend to make hair+fur a more enjoyable tool to use?
thank you for your time!
