Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

But in Hairworks, When import my FBX and APX the hair doesn't stick to the mesh.. So I tried ALOT of Plug-ins.. Ornatrix / HairFarm but nothing works.. Please help me.. It comes like this when I import the stuff in HairWorks (Screenshot below).. The video tutorials in YouTube for HairWorks exporting and those stuff suck!! I mean it's not clear! Sorry for my aggressiveness but it took me 2 weeks for trying all Hair stuff in 3ds max!. The second pic is the Final result that I had in 3ds max! It's an Educational Cinematic Project for personal.. Please help me!!!!

i have never used hairworks but it would probably be easier for people to troubleshoot if you posted pictures of your modifier stack from 3ds max and your export settings.

alt text alt text Thanks for replying! I've actually figured it out! Here are my Current (.FBX and .APX) settings which let me Successfully import my Hair Models in UE4. Hope it'll get handy to someone like me! :-D But there are some minor Issues like getting bald spots in UE4.. But eventually I'll find out and Update it, so others can get help too!

Thank you once again for replying!

Hello sir, I've tried not select "Automatic" in .FBX export settings, but it wasn't working for me! and Yes, I've gone in Hair tab in HairWorks and checked the Stiffness slider as you said, by doing that it was getting near to the shape that i had in 3ds max.. Now I've successfully imported my model in UE4.. These are screenshots of my work in UE4.. But it's getting really lag-ish when I keep my Graphic setting to "Cinematic" I'm using "Medium" level of Graphic settings for quite Best Performance!.. I'm actually trying to create a Short Film using 'Scott Adkins' (Down there) as Batman ;-) !..Thank you once again for replying and helping :-D @Bakikibakibabaki

Ganesh. K
