Fiber Optic Hair or Fur

Recommended Posts

Hey, fellow C4D enthusiasts!


I need to create a school bus covered in fiber optic fur, which will be a presentation model for the real thing! Only problem is I've been scouring the internet for days trying to figure out a way to get the tips of my hair to light up, like fiber optics. 


I found a thread on here but the links to the suggested tut and any reference files are kaput. I also found a tut on YouTube with a poster of exactly what I'm looking for but the teach doesn't go as far as what's represented on the thumbnail (the important part for me, of course). 


From what I've been able to figure out, thus far, is setting up the hair type as a spline and then setting up a cloner, somehow, to add glowing spheres to the end of the spline hairs. But I am def missing some important steps. 


Anyone have any suggestion?  Thanks a beellion for any/all help!!
