Curves from Strands 

 

Overview 

To allow Ornatrix to communicate with other parts of Maya's pipeline it is often necessary to convert guides or hair created in Ornatrix into Maya NURBS curves. This can be done using the Curves from Strands operator. Curves generated by Ornatrix will continue to be driven using the operator stack allowing for non-destructive updates as well as simulation.

 

Convert Hair to Curves 

To convert hair or guides to curves:
  1. Select the hair or guides shape inside Maya
  2. Click the Curves from Strands button on the Ornatrix Shelf

The shape object will be converted to curves.
