Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Transforming curves, part of Maya: nHair.
…Previously we saw how to use the Paint Hair Follicles tool to…style the start curves to cause the hair to grow in different directions.…And that's what I did here.…I painted the inclination and polar attributes…to create this part and to cause the…hair to grow naturally, according to you…know, what looks like a natural growth pattern.…However, with that technique you'll always miss one or two of the start curves.…And you'll need…to adjust them manually.…You can also just adjust them manually without using the Paint tool.…
Currently, we're seeing the output curves.…We need to see the start curves.…So I want to select any part of the…system, and then go up into the nHair menu and…choose Display> Start position, and now we can see…these dark blue lines, those are actually the start curves.…It's important…that we don't hide the follicles, cause if we do hide the follicles that will…hide the start curves as well, because…the Start curves are children of the follicles.…Okay, and so we can see this a little bit better, I'll hide the strokes too.…
