  1. Hi, I apologize for the extremely late reply. I tried reading up about hair caps and didn't find much talking about how to implement them. From what I understood, I directly took all the polygons from the one model that I already have with its hair groomed, and constrain/parent it to the head bone and turn off the polygons in the renderer and just render the hairs. I faced some problem doing this because the moment I delete the polys from the head, that I don't need, and the hair guides change, as shown in the image attached. I didn't really get the surface deformer thing and why I'd need to
  2. Hi, another question about hair sims in C4D. My basic question is that I have done grooming on a particular model and I want to basically copy that hair and have it attached to the same object but with different animation (and so simulation will be different). I have a .fbx of the second model where I need to add the hair. The polygons/mesh are identical only the animation is different. When I make the exact same selection on my new .fbx model and copy-paste my old hair object and put the new selection tag in the link under guides, it doesn't wanna seem to move with the mesh but stays in one
  3. Hi, I tried out caching it again today and works fine. Also, the frame rates were the same I checked. But anyways its working fine. Can't thank you enough for all the help!
  4. Hey, thank you so much for all the help. I'm really doing this stuff for the first time and this helped out so much. Thank You! So on an unrelated question, after caching the simulation, the hair doesn't seem to render the same with the cache and without the cache...I have no clue why thats really happening. Cached.mp4 UnCached.mp4
  5. I changed the scale of the kid to 4 times the previous size and it eliminated like 98% of the jitter. Ive attached another video for you to see. Now I don't really know if/how much of this will show up in the render though BetterSim.mp4
  6. I think this might be the case...because the model I have is about 22cm in height (its supposed to be a 3yr old human kid). So should I keep it's height somewhere between 85-95cms because thats the average height of kids that age, or some other height that makes dynamics work better? Also just scaling object from the attributes tab would do the trick? I've attached the file I have been working on, here : How does this really help? I have attached a screen recording of the file you sent. Theres one hair at the top of that does slowly keep moving till the end of the animation
  7. Hi, I tried upping the iteration to number of segments (that is what, I assume, you meant by guide points) of the hair guides (5 in my case). It did decrease the amount of "jitter" that was happening in the guides but it's still there. I have attached another screen recording for you to see. Yes currently I wanted to style/groom the hair once it achieved it's "rest state" and by setting it as dynamics in the Hair Edit subhead inside Simulate. I was following this tutorial to do the initial styling. I do want minimal dynamics to act on it once the main character animation is done
  8. Hi, I have been trying to make this hair simulation of human hair in cinema by selecting polygons of the head where the hairs are supposed to be attached. Everything works fine except the gravity simulation. The hair sorta settles down like it supposed to but keeps vibrating and jittering. I have made the face a collider object so that hair doesn't go inside the scalp. I'm attaching 2 videos showing the simulations when I keep the collision on and when I turn it off. Thanks in advance! Collision-OFF.mp4 Collision-ON.mp4
  9. Hey, I'm really sorry but because it is for a client and I don't currently know when or even if they will release it I can't upload it here...the main issue is mostly resolved as a work-around of not using the connect object so I guess that is what created the problem in the first place. I apologize again if this is strange especially after me asking for help, but I just don't have the complete control over it. I hope you understand.
  10. Hi, I have only one main mesh of the panda inside a connect object which is referenced inside the hair object. I've attached a screenshot of the object manager for hierarchy. I just discovered out that using the "panda" mesh here directly in the hair object works fine and gives the same result as seen in the viewport render. I think there seems to be some problem with using the connect object with the rig here.
  11. The title is almost self-explanatory. I have a scene with hair on a "panda" and when I render it in the viewport, it shows up fine and uniform as it should be. But when I render (and save it) in the picture viewer, it shows up all choppy and not as long in some places as it's supposed to be. Is there something I'm missing here? I've attached both images of the renders in the viewport and the picture viewer. Any suggestions are welcome! Thanks in advance.
  12. Hey, this is actually a very good starting point, It was exactly almost exactly what I was looking for. One small question though, so you do suggest that shaders is the way to go for this kind of a project? Thanks so much @DasFrodo!
  13. Hi, so I was messing around with shaders in C4D and trying to create a fictional planet's surface using only the shaders. I have a couple of questions after my failed attempt at doing this : 1) Using noise I was able to create an atmospheric feel with a dusty feel like Jupiter seen from space. How can I actually create different shapes of land that looks random and generated? Because all I have now is like and ocean with different colors (I can attach images for reference if required) 2) Are shaders the way to go for this kind of thing? I mean this is just a personal project s
  14. I see how useful it can be...thanks got your replies... appreciate the help. I guess I gotta add another thing on stuff to learn list
  15. Okay, incoming super noob question : Does using substance designer and other apps made by allegorithmic help make my textures more realistic? And do I get more functionality over the default texture editor on c4d? Please let me know if this is an inappropriate place to ask questions... I'll delete this and start a new post then. Thanks in advance.
