  • Having some issues with the hair, iv had to come up with a way around two main problems.

    1: Intersecting layers at the root causing bad spec highlights

    2: Hair looking flat, with hardly any strands visible.

    3: Controlling Clumps

    First issue was a very bad one, iv found that if I have less hairs, but use the clone to make the hairs up that spec issue is resolved.

    Second issue was partly to issue 1, and not enough colour variations.  Using the S,V variation, and tint colour in blend mode Darken, this brought out strands.

    Third issue was solved buy duplication the hair tag, making a new selection set applied, and re root the guides,  The style from the hair is kept, but is limited to the guides.  I used Repell brush with Ctrl key to clump together, also use the clump setting foe the hair tag, not in the material.  The last layer I added frizz.

    Real hair has at least two colours to the spec, a light main spec, and a colour tinge, setting these up separately got me the look im after.  Still got some work to do, but am getting there.  Next is to apply this to a real hair style.

  • Im putting this into a video, so should help others new to C4D.  Here is the C4D file, have a play with it, see what you can do to make it even better.

    very nice work! 

    good idea about using multiple hair objects for more control over the clumping/frizzing hair!

    Very interesting. Realistic hair isn't easy, but there is a quite good tutorial at Cineversity. It is also based on multiple hair objects. I've seen a quite good hai tutorial for Blender, which can also be replicated in Cinema 4D with multiple hair objects.

    Great job and I'm curious, where you will get to...

  • Thanks guys.  @Visionnext Do you know what cinivercity video it was, and the one for Blender?  I'm quite determine to get the best from C4D as iv inversted a lot of money into this app, so need to make it work for me.  Iv been wanting a hair system in 3d from my other apps iv got for years, and hope this app will give me the results I'm after as its hard to find any works out there in this area I'm going into.

     

    Thanks, Dan

    Unfortunately the Blender tutorial seems to be gone. They have replaced it by a new one, but I don't have access to this one.

  • Thank you will check these out.  I must say, im getting some nice results here, cant wait to apply what im learning to a project.  

    The push tool has come in handy instead of using grow hair by normal which creates a straight line out the head, I use the Push tool, that gives nice control in essentially puffing out the roots of the hair.

    One thing I miss in Cinema 4D's hair, is that all the segments along a guide hair have the same length. This is different in Blender. You can have shorter segments next to the skull, which helps to bend the hair better.

    ...or did I miss a feature in Cinema 4D?
