Ornatrix 3dsmax V6 is out!

Posted by:EPHERE
Data created:7 January 2019

Version 6 of our ultimate hair, fur, and feather solution for 3dsmax is here after a year of beta testing. We have reworked the base of Ornatrix to bring more speed, added a basket of new features, and improved many of the commonly used tools and operators to bring you the grooming workflow you can count on.

Edit and isolate final hairs, simulate complex hair movement with our new Moov dynamics system, move things within your pipeline with ease with our expanded Alembic workflow, bake and modify your hair procedurally by adopting external guides, and do much more with your grooms today!

A quick glimpse of new features:

  • New optimized viewport hair rendering, bringing up to 4x editing FPS speed up over V5
  • New Moov Hair physics provides a whole new powerful way to simulate any type of hair, complex or simple
  • New Harmonic Oscillator modifier provides a quick and easy real-time way of simulating basic fur and hair dynamics
  • New Normalize modifier to fix intersecting hairs
  • New Clumping modifier with powerful features like per-clump management and clump patterns
  • New Braid object for usage together with clumping to generate braids
  • New Push Away From Surface modifier for accurate surface penetration fixing

  • Automatic grounding of baked hair and multiplied hair
  • Ability to load up to 5 Alembic files into the same hair object at the same time
  • UV-base flow for hair from mesh strips
