Hair Farm Studies

Here are a couple more Hair Farm studies. Majority of these tests will focus more on the simulation features of the product. Read More…


First off, I would like to mention and thank this great Ornatrix 2 Review by Joe Gun. It inspired me to write down this post. It is not meant to be a concise review, but rather, more of just my thoughts – after trying out demos of both Hair Farm 2 and Ornatirx 2 for a short time (2 days to be exact).

Apart from testing out the basic hair generating features, most of my focus leaned more towards the dynamics and simulation side of the products, as this was supposed to be a quick R&D for an upcoming project.

MaxScript: Bone Divider

(After a very long while)

I’ve uploaded a new simple script for dividing bones at scriptspot.

Bone Divider 0.1

This was a result of watching THIS tutorial from the 3dsMaxHowTos Youtube videos.
Hopefully I’ve squished all the bugs since I just wrote the script today.

A friend also suggested that I create a version where it can automatically smooth out the creationg of the new bones.
I already have a few ideas on how to approach it — for the next version.

Added an additional page to the blog. That’s where I’ll be posting mostly some of my old/past works.

FumeFX – Crawling Smoke

Largely inspired by the work done in the movie 2012, I did some tests on how some FumeFX (1.x) parameters would affect a crawling smoke simulation.

FumeFX – Partitioning

In some rare cases, dividing a fumeFX grid into separate parts can help create a bigger simulation area. This entry will discuss a script called the FumeFX Partitioner to tackle this task.

Normal Grid / Partitioned Grid
