Default Fur plugin in progress

Well, this is technically a plugin, but it's also a work in progress. It's a fur plugin for creating hair, grass, etc. in AC3D. The final version will have slightly better length management, and you'll be able to apply textures with alpha/transparency channels for more believable hair/plant/etc renders.

Currently all hair strands are done with simple lines, no geometric shapes. All screenshots in AC3D, with single pass, simple hair. You will be able to perform multiple passes to get much better results, these are simply test shots.

No good estimation on a release date yet - maybe a few weeks?

These are simply teaser images --- better images and examples will be provided with the final plugin.


Grass example


Beard's not trimmed very well, but each strand of hair is its own surface, so you can trim/shape to your heart's content.




Bit of a high mohawk here --- almost a bizarre feather duster head or something.

Hmm - think my ISP may be wigging out on me again. I'm seeing them fine --- hopefully that's just a temporary hiccup?

I'll need to move my stuff to some cheap web hosting somewhere.
