I have two hair patches on a tiger. One for his full body and one for his whiskers and some accent hairs. Every time I close and open this file the hairs detach and I have to re-root the hairs on the first frame of the animation. I have no dynamics its all static so I don't have the option to cache the hairs.
This wouldn't be so bad but I am trying render on the farm and as soon as the farm opens the file the hairs are disconnected.
