Tutorial: Creating realistic hair with textured planes

How to create hair, using no plugins, that looks stylisch yet realistic

originally found on:


the advantages of using this method:

-every render system is able to render them (unlike using plugins)

-gives the hair a ''stylish'' though realistic look, which might be the aim for some projects.

-easy to display in real time.

-possible in every application(unlike most plugins)

the disadvantages:

-takes a long time to set up.

-restyling is basically impossible, you should get it right the first time.

-much harder to animate.


In this tutorial I will be using 3dsmax, though it is possible to follow along in different applications, since it only uses basic tools.

if something is unclear please comment and I will explain it or adjust the tutorial.
