Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting dynamic properties, part of Creating Hair with Maya nHair.
…Probably the most important aspect of the dynamic simulation are…the dynamic properties of stretch…resistance, compression resistance, and band resistance.…We're going to look at stretch and compression resistance in this movie.…I've got a scene here that's got passive follicles, and I…set the nucleus space scale, appropriately…so we're getting physically accurate results.…We want to go and open up the attribute editor.…Select the hair,…hit Ctrl+a to open the attribute editor.…And go to the hair system shape note…and we want to go to the dynamic properties section.…You'll need to scroll down a bit to get to that.…
And in dynamic properties you'll see stretch and compression resistance.…Currently you'll see there's a lot of stretching.…It's looking kind of unrealistic as if the hairs are made out of rubber or something.…We do want to increase these values, but before we do…I want to point out there is a switch here that says…No Stretch, and you're going to be tempted to turn that on,…because that seems like a simple way of preventing all stretching.…
