Hair Card Tutorial Queston

Sorry..... I could have sworn I asked it in the video series but can't find it.


Question: If you want the final product to have a wind effect, I know you can use rigs like skinny, etc. but is there a way to use the hair particle system so that you get some air effect without moving the hole hair segment?


Thanks

    Hey Chuck, you might be able to use particles but honestly I don't think it would be worth the effort since it would be somewhat of a hack. Rigging it would be the way to go IMO. But if you want to give it a shot, you could use this technique: https://cgcookie.com/lesson/animating-grass

    Thanks, I appreciate the advise... I can see a great use for this method of using cards..... but pony tails move in the wind and head movement.....lol....so was rethinking that and since cards are eventually used to create mesh.....maybe a sphere with hair jointed to the card mesh would work...will let you know...
