Using SasLite, polychains to create long hair.
The surfaces used on the chains is set to 100% transparency.
When I render, then chains are visible as a negative area in the SasLite hair.
Image attached showing the polychains, and a render showing the problem.
On left side, the red and blue lines are the polychains, I used 2 different surfaces to allow 2 different SasLite settings.

thanks

Don't know if this can be done if chains are in same layer as model but I always put the chains in a secondary layer and parent it to the main body.

Then instead of using transparency, I use dissolve on the chains.

They never showup when set to 100% dissolve.

hope that helps

Alternatively you can use "Unseen by Camera" so that your guide chains cast shadows (useful 'cause SasLite doesn't).
