In LightWave 9.3.1, is there any plug in out that you can add hair to an object.

Thank you.

Sasquatch! But if your already a registered 9.3 user you might as well download the free upgrade version of 9.5-it has hair features built in! Hey vola-you just saved a packet on plugins!

yes but 9.5 is still in beta, and dont want to run a beta in a working lab. How would I go about installing Sasquatch plugin.

I think it might be worth trying the beta version...ive heard fab stuff about the fur and hair. Infact there are loads of threads here on this forum.And i believe final release might be around the corner!

As for installing...in layout-utilities tab-add plugin!

Tried that, but it says that no plugin was found. Also all of the plugin are in the plugins folder as .plugin. The sasquatch plugin comes with a .p extension.

You are running the Universal Binary version of LightWave. That means that all your plug-ins also have to be compiled for UB. Unfortunately Saslite and Sasquatch are not. FiberFX in LightWave 9.5 is ;)

Weve been trying to use Fiberfx in production. Were still forced to go back to sasquatch.
