Yeah, thats pretty cool. I recall how tricky it was to create feather effects on my last film project - so well done and now spill your feathering secrets :D

That looks absolutely gorgeous!

Not that it is likely to be noticed, but is there any intersecting between feathers, particularly in the concave areas, or will they bend just enough for any ugly seams or somesuch to appear?

just what i needed to see
so, is there any problem using sub d surfaces to grow the feathers from....or not?
this could really save my current bacon!
may have to pick your brains further, if thats cool.:hey:

Fantastic stuff, it looks great. I may have to have a play with that myself. FFX is shaping up to be a really cool addition to LW, and once they take out the bugs should be a very powerful asset!

I can't download the tut, it says that your bandwidth has been exceeded. No doubt, that bird with the feathers looks fantastic! How can I get the tut?

When I try to follow this example using the UVbias, I dont see how to get all the guides to conform uniformly to face the normals. They instead tend to always flatten out along one axis (?).
