hello :help: ,

I am pretty new to Lightwave, so I apologize first if this is a silly question. I saw a nice demo in the features page of LW8, titled "clothfx on hair splines". There the Mr. Proton's girl was walking around in the scene shaking her long hairs.

Now, I browsed the contents CD included with LW8 and I also had a quick look at the Newtek's LW tutorials page and on this forum too. But, I didn't find any tutorial/example scene showing how to make it. Any help please ?


bye, Alessandro

Well the main things are to remember are, use the cotton(thin) preset in the etc tab to get a good start, then set Advance>stretch limit to near 5%. Try to use a lower res collision object (like a couple of spheres) instead of the head to collide with the hair, as this will be a lot quicker. Remember to turn collision on in the collision tab too! :)
