Does anyone know how to achieve a more realistic black glossy hair? I'm having problems trying to get the right look. Any advice would be appreciated thanks. :)

Hi, I still have no experience with FiberFX so I can't help right now. But I think you could post an image or photo to show what look you are after, so others could give you some hints.

Regards.

Its doable but personally I find Fiberfx's shading quite unintuitive. Try Lowering the diffuse. Its been a while since I struggled with the fiberfx settings but i know that trying to crank the spec up too high can often give undesirable results. It seems to be a delicate balance between the spec and the gloss settings.

FFX specular settings are pretty bad quality wise but you can get good shading with the shadow settings. I'll see if I can come up with black hair this weekend. I made a video about shadow settings here:
