SHAVE AND A HAIRCUT NOTE: You would need Shave and A Haircut for Maya 2017 (*/**) in order to render the hair, otherwise you would be able to render only the main mesh. For an even better render quality you can increase the hair primitives count up to your machine memory limit (The actual renders have been made on a machine based on a single I7 cpu with 16 gigs of ram - about 9 minutes for a 1480x800 frame) --13 different hair systems for a total of about 1.5 mil. hairs.
Included: Exported hair curves created by hair primitives (FBX and Maya 2017 ascii) so you can use them as guides if you' re using a different Fur/Hair plugin.
* The actual files have been created with Shave and a haircut 9.5 ** Please always use an updated Shave and a haircut release to avoid rendering issues.
ARNOLD RENDERER NOTE:
You have to install MtoA Shave extension correctly (from Solid Angle) in order to have Joe Alter Shave and a haircut to work. The actual rendering settings (AA=3) are for a medium quality output (preview images shown above). To get better quality images you can increase the Arnold settings up to your machine limit.
-The model is provided in the standard pre-rigging pose. -The signature preview pose is included in a separate maya file.
