I'm quite disappointed in this update. No wrinkle system, the hair system is basically just a system that breaks down hair into different objects, the hair looks just as bad as the previous hair but now you can "change colors easily", theres no hair physics, no UE4 Groom conversion, no way to easily make your own hair styles in CC, and no black/afro options or styles. Very much a let down for me.


Me too!!!
For years the industry has been clamoring for a good tool to create hair, with the quality of reallusion, I thought it would finally happen.
I expected more from the hair system, I hope it is just the beginning of an advanced system.

I was pretty excited when I saw the first videos on this update because I thought we were getting a really useful smart hair tool, and I can't complain about the new features because this particular update doesn't cost any additional money, but I can't avoid thinking that the idea that many of us were hoping for might never happen, and I'm talking about a really smart hair tool that like the rest of the software allows us users to customize not only textures and colors but also shapes in an easy way.

But the new smart hair tool only works on textures and colors and the question is, is this just a step in the direction many of us was hoping for or is this a wanted limitation and just some sort of bait to try to get us purchasing more and more hairstyles from the content store since we cannot create custom shapes directly in CC3?

I also have to say that the tongue addition and the expression plus are great, so the update is very welcome in general, I only wanted to point out that I would be more than ready to pay for an additional tool or major update that would include a flexibility for hair creation and customization as great as CC3 already offers when it comes to body and facial shapes, just not ready to pay for hair collections because these never completely match what I'm looking for.

My only desire for the 3.4 update was the release of the dynamic wrinkle system. Alas...
The new explus blend morphs and smart hair tool does seem like a welcome advancement though.

Hi everyone,

Sorry for the confusion. The new Smart Hair indeed inherit soft physics capability like all other Reallusion hairs, which you can see from the embedded female hair.


Why we marked the Prime Hairstyle is incompatible with physics is because not all hair items in this pack has physics weight map assignment. Due to the negligence of source UV design during production, some of the hair UV are not that good for proper physics display.

The ponytail supports physics:

There will be another component-based Smart Hair - Hair Builder pack coming in Q2.
All hairs will have weight map perfectly setup, so do the hairs in the future.
Hope I have clarified your confusion. Smile

Miranda,

You say the "10 hair styles" supplied by that pack do not support physics.  Do you mean the new hair system doesn't support physics?  Or only those particular hairs?  And if only those particular hairs, why not?  You seem to be saying I could not put physics maps on them?  Or that they just don't allow it?

We really need to know this -- what about those hairs prevents physics from working?


Would love to know this too! I’d love to buy the hair pack but a lack of physics unfortunately makes it a no go for me Smile 


Okay, just a quick test -- you *can* put weight maps on at least the hairstyle I tried (the long flowing one).  It's a bit tricky for several reasons, not the least being you can't use (my) old trick of coloring the hair with the UVs to find out what is what.  I'm getting it *mostly* done, although a few stray hairs keep falling off. 

Why physics maps were not provided for at least the longer styles I have no idea -- perhaps they were rushed out, perhaps they didn't feel like physics were needed?  (Wrong, in the case of the long one).  But at least it means physics WILL work on the new hair stuff.

 Hi Miranda,

I've purchased the Hair packs but just for clarification, will these packs be updated in the future to fully enable physics with corrected UVs or will we have to purchase new packs?
