View Full Version : FFX Hair problems

04-12-2012, 02:11 AM
Hey Guys,

I have this hair object, which gives a result in an empty scene, but when I place it in my final scene it only renders short hair.
FFX settings on the guides are the same in both scenes.
What can be the problem?

Cheers, Simon

Did you scale the model? or changed the subpatch tessellation?

Yeah, I parented it to the parent of all other objects and then set the scale back to one. But that shouldn't matter should it, I mean, the guide hairs are still the same length (relatively) so FFX should match them, no?

Ok, I've found the problem.

It is a scaling issue. As you can see in the picture, once you scale the object, FFX for some unimaginable reason scales the hairs. No matter how long the guide hairs are.
This also happens if you don't scale your hair object but DO scale its parent. So parenting it to a null and then scaling that null also makes FFX scale the hairs.

Looks like a major bug to me, gonna fogbuzz it.
