Hair Room Tutorial #1 Ė Grass is Greener


I apologize in advance for the poor quality of the screen captures. Poser does not allow printscreen and Jascís Paint Shop Pro leaves marks behind.

Making grass is a good way to get introduced to the very basics of the hair room.

Nice tut, thankyou! With regards to print screening, try using Howie's Quick Screen Capture software. You can assign a grab key, set the directory to save into and, best of all, it's FREE! Lol! Take a look on Google and you'll find it, it's a tiny program too, I swear by it! ;)

Very nice, clear, concise tutorial. I like that it has a bit of humor in it, too, such as the comment about growing grass without harmful chemicals. =) I'm searching for the answer to one question right now that the tutorials don't seem to address, though--can hair created in the hair room be saved as a prop and/or independent object? =) Thanks. ~Threshie

Even though I have been using poser for years, I find this tutorial a handy reference. Fantastic work, thank you.

Wow, you're fast! :P BTW, I'm sure you'll find out for yourself, but one of the best things about UOSU is that it lets you take a shot of only the active window... That's great for capturing just the parameter window, or even the library window... I like that feature since it keeps me from having to crop my pictures all the time. Great luck to ya', and thanks again for sharing your knowledge with us! :)

Thank you muchly, Angelsinger. I'm on my way now.

Thank you for this tutorial! Your pictures are clear enough, I don't see any problem. However, you alerted me to something of which I was previously unaware: I opened Poser 5 and used the PrtSc key, and found the same thing you did. Nothing pasted into Photoshop. AnyHOO, you can use this litte program instead, (ZIP file download is only 356KB). It's FREE, and the clarity of images is amazing. It's called UOSU (Ultima Online Screenshot Utility), and you can download it from this page -- http://www.hh.iij4u.or.jp/~kmatuoka/uosu/indexe.html I did a test shot of Poser's interface, and everything was clear and beautiful. Hope this helps you, especially since you've helped so many of us!

I was using it, actually, tomahawk... but it was making Poser perform an entirely different function. :)

Good tutorial:) One comment however Poser does support the printscreen just use the Printscreen next to the key on the keyboard. Then paste in Paint Shop Pro as New image(Ctrl-v)

Proper render settings can also vastly improve the look of hair. I found that the default 1 pixel box filter in FireFly doesn't look that good with hair - a 2 pixel gauss filter or a 3 pixel sinc filter yield much more pleasant results.
