Hi Jeordanis,

This was incredibly fast! Beautyfull, man! I really aprecciated your attention Smile
Sure I have the steps:

01. Create a Sphere and Add Quik Hair>Fur Ball
02. On Edit Guides sub selection, choose Strands and Select all
03. Edit Guides modifier > Guide Groups: Activate "Use Guide Groups" > Assign Group Id=2
04. On Hair from Guides Modifier > Export Object Type = Guides
05. Add "Edit Guides Modifier" Over "Hair From Guides Modifier"
06. on the new "Edit Guides modifier" > Guide Groups: Activate "Use Guide Groups" > Select Group Id=2

The Idea was to invert the selection and crearte a new group, preserving de original Guides as a separate group. If the cluster modifier keep the guides as splines, and I could separate the creation phases by Groups, preserving the previous one,  I could achive  the layered cluster effect suggested by Rouhollah Toghyani on this tutorial. The image bellow (created by Rouhollah Toghyani) describes the idea.
