    Nice hair, but...

    I made some nice hair for a lady astronaut, then found out FiberFX doesn't show up through the transparent visor on the suit. I then rendered without the visor, then made another layer inside the visor and front mapped the first render onto that. It works. Animation render will use the same technique, but take a bit more work and time...

    In the fiberfx tab..rendering/shading...check reflections.

    Boom, there it is! But it is taking significantly longer than the front map method.
