After many many tries, I think I finally figured out how to get some decent fur material. Yes, its an ecosystem, a short grass that was done in white, (and scaled way down) while color was based on a gray scale image for distribution, and a color map for the color. The three furs in the image are about 150K plants apiece (two dynamic, while the middle one is normal) As I am using Vue 9 studio I don't have the paint ability, which would have really helped a lot I think. Render time was about seven hours.

well done


Once in a while I look around,
I see a sound
and try to write it down
Sometimes they come out very soft
Tinkling light sound
The Sun comes up again

Very clever, Mr. Bond!  Looks like a modo render, the way that fur came out.

You could have also used this.

... but they are good for Vue 10.

It would appear great minds think alike. I honestly didn't know that was out there already. But I have Vue 9 Studio, so it probably wouldn't have done me much good. I like the alpha plane approach to yours though, a lot less resource intensive. I have used my method in Vue 6 with good results, but I still have a few problems to solve (such as specularity/highlights not working). My solution is really more like wirey fur, as the plant model I'm using is not the best solution and I lack the ability to create what I'm looking for.

My ultimate goal is to be able to use wind to make the fur move and flow as if someone was running their hands through the fur.

Wow! Dear AboranTouristCouncil, 

What you are planning sounds to me nearly like a new feature of Vue!

Superb! I hope you will manage to solve all problems.

Possibly I can help you with the Link.

;-) and best regards, Bernie
