Hair and fur don't appear to render behind glass textures. (C4D R12 Studio)

What's up with that / how do I make it work?

In your render settings, under hair render, check Reflection/Refraction/Traced Shadows. Should render fine then.

Thanks Mike, that works for Hair but not for Fur.

I poked around with the other settings there but didn't see anything that allowed fur to work.

However, I was looking in Help, and I found this:

Quote - When using the Fur Object, the "Cache all Fur" option must be enabled to allow the fur to be refracted in transparent surfaces and be reflected.

So I selected the fur, ticked that setting, and I now get them both working as shown in attachment. :)

Glad you got it sorted!

Thanks. I know this problem. Sometimes you have to look into the render options, how many reflections you use. I think, 15 is too much (makes rendering very slow), so I put it on 4 or 7, but often it's not enough...

Is there a solution to show hair using fog? The objekt ID with render-tag to put it together in the postpro later doesn't work (hair isn't cut out on black - there is nothing).

To be honest I think I've never even used Fog, sorry :/
