    COOL!! Love the expressions, Chris!! Will they come WITH him or be a ADD ON pack, like they are for Dawn/Dusk etc.? (and yes, I know SOME came with Dawn/Dusk and more came after)

    WOW, nice map work on Kong! I'm also interested on what "type" of fur will be available.

    I'm working on just a handful of expressions fine tuned for Kong that will come with the base product. So many of the Dusk expressions work on the Gorilla as they are and others to degrees. So if folks already have those they'll be a big value for Kong as well.

    Ah. Poser specific then. Ah well. Perhaps someone will do a LAMH preset and turn it loose on AM's website.

    I almost wonder if it could be exported out of Poser in OBJ and imported to DS... I will have to test that out once it's available! LOL

    Tiny, it looks wonderful, though! :)

    Looking wonderful...I would also like a LAMH preset whether it is a product or a freebie on AM's site...

    Thanks everybody for the kind words. <3

    No, it can not be exported unfortunately. You would only get non dynamic guide strands, the "real hair" appears when rendered.

    Gotcha. Ah, well. It was just a thought, right? :) I really need to dig back into LAMH some more... building from scratch in it is still quite a bit over my head.

    I had a look at the LAMH and it seems it is not dynamic. Is that correct? If so, how do one use it in animations where the hair need to flow with the motion? Anyone know?

    No, I think that LAMH fur is fibermesh, not dynamic.

    I'm not sure how it would be used in animations, but I don't believe it's animate-able in any case. I don't make animations, and I haven't dug into LAMH far enough to be producing my own furs from scratch yet, so I'm not entirely positive, but the last I heard, that was the status of LAMH in regards to animation.

    LAMH hair/fur is not dynamic, it's Renderman curves (in 3Delight) or geometry (prop). It moves with parent object. Can't say anything about animation.
