Exporting Hair as an Obj for Element in Cinema 4D
Exporting Hair as an Obj for Element in Cinema 4D

This is driving me cray! I've scoured the inter webs for a week trying to flatten this speed bump but to no avail. So...

I desperately need at least one swatch of fur or hair for a model I'm animating in Video Copilot's Element 3D plug in, which means the hair must be exported as an obj. I know this means the hair must be converted into polygons but, with my rudimentary knowledge in Cinema 4D for hair, I cannot for the life of me figure it out.

I found one or two "solutions" on various forums that are closed and far too vague. Whenever I followed the simplistic suggestions to make the hair editable, the hair would simply disappear and when I export as an Obj, again, the hair disappears.

Again, I've already created beautiful fur, now I just have to somehow make it an Obj to import into Element 3D. Is this possible and does anyone have anymore of a comprehensive, effective suggestion to accomplish this?

So much appreciation to the person who may be able to solve this and, of course, anyone even willing to try.

You could
1.- Select the Hair >>>> Generate >>>> and select one option frome the dropdown menu (like flat)

2.- Make it Editable and export






Hope that helps, good luck

Imagination is the best tool...
