  1. Hi, It's in de dynamics tag of your spline dynamics. Go to the properties tab and set the 'rest mix' to 0% and your spline will follow your Null correctly. If you set it to be a 100% your spline won't follow your Null at all, if you set it to be a 50% it your spline will follow the Null at half the speed and so on. Hope this helps, -W-
  2. I see you used the ripple shader. The ripple shader is only visible in the picture viewer and not in the viewport. My guess is that's problem. -W-
  3. There is al strange light on the ceiling in the corner which shouldn't be there. Your TV seems to be floating. The carpet and wineglasses don't look to convincing either. Apart from that, nice render.
  4. As you can see in your object manager, your extrude is still made out of two different objects, so probably you didn't select all your objects before you used the 'connect + delete' command. Two different objects means you will have to apply the hair twice. So, select the extrude and the rounding 1.1 and then 'connect + delete' again, reapply the hair and you'll be good to go. Hoop dat dit helpt :) -W-
  5. Your logo isn´t any different than a sphere, the problem is that you don´t have enough geometry to grow hair on. Select your extrude object and set it to ´quadrangles´ in the object settings (Caps tab), also check 'regular grid' and give it a value of two or three. Then, with your extrude object selected, hit 'c' to make it editable. After that, select all the extruded parts, right click and choose 'connect objects + delete'. Next go to 'Mesh/Commands/Optimize' to make it one single mesh. This will leave you with enough geometry to grow hair on. Hope this helps. -W-
  6. Nice, I like it! But what´s with al the scratches in the background?
  7. If you want to keep the body in one piece you can also hide the polygons by using a Alpha map. I use both this, and CBR´s method, depends on what I want to do with the model. For your next model it's also good practice to model the whole thing as one piece, saves a lot of time. -W-
  8. - Run the optimize command before you extrude. - Make sure 'preserve groups' is checked in the extrude tool. -W-
  9. The easiest way to do this is to model your tennis ball so you can select the polygons where you want your fur. If you don't know how to model a tennis ball, THIS tutorial might help. Another way is to UV map your sphere, make a black and white map to determine where your fur should grow. THIS video shows you how to do that. Hope this helps. -W-
  10. Hmm, I can extrude this without any problem just using the extrude tool with a max. angle of 90 degrees.
  11. Not sure about your weight problem, But Cerbera is right about the dense mesh. I had a look at your file and if you take your low-poly base mesh and subdivide it once (With 'smooth subdivisions' turned on) it,s perfectly fine for rigging. This might also solve your weight problem. If not, keeping it low poly will make your life a whole lot easier ;)
  12. Very nice! I would't eat the raspberry though.... Also the water isn't very convincing I think. And maybe it's a matter of the but I would have put that (or a) raspberry on top of the cake. Had a quick look at the Blender tutorial, makes me wonder why people keep spending insane amounts of money on programs like C4D etc. (Yeah, I know, workflow blablabla :)) -W-
  13. Try spline dynamics, that should work. Attach a spline to the hat using a hair constraint tag (I would use a B-spline) and give the spline a spline dynamics tag. Then use a sweepnurbs for the geometry and play with the settings of the spline dynamics tag. Hope this helps, -W- Also give the hat a hair collider tag.
  14. Hi, I´m creating an stormy ocean using the free HOT4D plugin and I´m pretty happy with the result. Now for the next step I would like to add some rain and for that I´m using the ripple shader. After some experiments I think I have found the right settings, however this only works when I turn off my ocean. As soon as I turn my ocean back on the bump for the ripple shader gets all messed up... I have tried various settings but I can´t figure it out, maybe someone here has a brilliant idea? Thx in advance :) -W- ocean.rar
  15. Nice render, but I think there is much room for improvement. - The textures on that wooden chest don't look very convincing. - The lamp on the right looks like you have cut out a piece of your image, it's completely flat, if you see the light on the left, you can clearly see it's cylindrical shape. - The curtain rail doesn't seem attached to the wall. - I should also have a closer look at the outside, the grass doesn't look very realistic. Just some observations :) -W-
  16. To be honest, I was hoping that you had found a newer version instead of this 2015 version.... You know, the version where you can animate all the parameters :)
  17. Maybe you meant THIS one? This is the 2015 version by the date of the files. At least it works in R18, something the original plug-in doesn't. -W-
  18. Hi, I would love to have access to those files, but I'm not sure what you guys mean by a 'support ticket'? Never mind, already found the right button :) Also, I really don't remember which Email address I used signing up :( -W-
