A free Python script Copy Dynamic Hair Room Settings…
Prompts the user to select a dynamic strand-hair prop as a template, and copies its parameters to the currently selected dynamic strand-hair prop. If no HairProp is chosen from the list, but OK is clicked, the script defaults will be applied.
1. Install the fur items from Rosemary. I had decided to amalgamate the M4 props under the fur cape location. Thus they were all found at…
2. Load one of her furred items, and place it alongside a target prop. In this case my target was a mask.
3. The hair to hair settings-transfer script of course requires… hair. Any old hair, so to add it to the mask: Select Prop Hair Room | ‘New Growth Group’ | ‘Edit Growth Group’ | Select All | exit panel | Click ‘Grow Guide Hairs’ with default settings. Your mask prop should instantly be super-sprouting with default guide hairs!
I don’t know of any PoserPython script to do all of the above basic hair setup automatically, though it should be possible. Thus a visit to the Hair Room is still needed with this script.
4. OK, now I selected the group of default guide hairs on the mask. The script was run. The other hair groups in the scene became available for selection for transfer, via a simple drop-down list.
5. In an instant, the script then copies over the selected hair’s settings to the mask. Here we see the rendered result of a transfer from one of the hair groups used to make Rosemary’s hats. Only one was copied but several were used to make the hats, meaning that the results were a little sparse. That was solved by simply cranking the Hair Density Setting to 300,000 and giving the hair a slight ‘Pull Down’ of 0.00008.
Hurrah, a hairy mask…
Now what’s needed is an auto-setup script to run step 3 on any selected prop, even if you’re not in the Hair Room. And a handy library of 50 hair setting presets, each growing on a simple ball prop, to transfer from.
