Thank you. You're welcome. The compliment for your textures is well deserved. They are fantastic.
Thanks Miss B.WOOT! I'm liking what I'm seeing Me!
lol Poor kitty. That gives me an idea for a funny render. Thank you. I just hope I'm capable of completing the shader.someone got the clippers out on poor kitty! lol (its starting to look a lot more like fur)
I believe so. I will have to look into it. I know that there are a lot problems with my simulation settings. The thickness of the longer hairs is about the same as human hair. Making them thinner should also help, but I will try to figure out some better control over the transparency.Is there a way to make the side of the strands a bit transparent?
I think you are on to something. I've been trying to think of a way to further soften the hair aside from the simulation settings. I took your suggestion of the sides being more transparent and altered the shader. It's still rendering, but what I've seen so far looks promising. I'll post the results as soon as the render is done.Is there a way to make the side of the strands a bit transparent?
You are absolutely correct.Cool. I just know my cats' fur looks a lot thinner.
I thought about it before I started making the shader, but I think it will better serve the community as a free resource and tutorial. The shader in all forms will be distributable, and there will be no conditions like credit or anything like that. I will also package it like a commercial product to make it user friendly.Will this be a shader for sale when it's finished? Might be a great product!
Yes. I am trying to find the proper settings for number of hairs, thickness of hair, clumpiness, kink or waviness, pull back, pull down. Unfortunately it's mostly trial and error. I should have some renders up soon to get feedback on the hair settings.Can you turn down the number of hairs?
