I have attached a render with three images placed side by side; one from Daz, one from iClone with High quality enabled and one with Quick Mode / Preview enabled. The issue I'm having is that in CC3+ / iClone 7, I am unable to get the correct settings to make the hair look similar to the Daz Studio render. (I know the lighting is different. I am referring to the hair texture.) The hair in Quick Mode | Preview looks somewhat accurate, but the High quality mode makes the hair appear like coiled magnetic tape from a cassette. The character is the G8M Kingston character with G8M Leroy beard, and the hair is Short Afro Hair for Genesis 3 and 8 | Daz 3D. Any suggestions?

Without looking I'm going to guess that hair is fibermesh and if it is there's no way you can get it to look the same inside of Reallusion products.

You need poly hair.  I've yet to see any afro style hair done with polys - I'm guessing it's *possible* but so very difficult no one has yet done so.  The good news is that RL has stated they are working on some African-American hairstyles, so I suspect you'll just need to be patient (if I had a gun to my head I'd say before the end of summer but who really knows?)

Edit: Yep, by looking I found it is indeed fibermesh. Do NOT use fibermesh hair inside of RL products.
