How to hide hair from camera?
on May 19, 2016 at 6:51:03 pm

i want my animated girl model to be seen only as a reflection in the mirror without the camera seeing her body and hair infront of the mirror.

I've tried compositing tag and un-ticked 'seen by camera' but it only works with the girl body...the camera still see her hair hanging in the air....

how do i hide the hair but still keep its reflection in the mirror ???

please help me please !!

if you render the hair as geometry (Hair/Generate tab) that can be hidden with a Compositing tag. You'd have to re-texture the hair... don't know any other way as Hair is it's own renderer... (but would be welcome to hear if it's possible)

interesting. I changed hair to Flat to check the compositing tag then was testing the quality of reflected hair in the mirror and changed it back to "None" (normal hair) and now it still obeys the Compositing tag and reflects but isn't seen by camera... don't know if that's reliable

yeah, slower as geometry definitely - quickest would be Flat if that look works for you. Try Physical render (if you have it) as it works with that as well, perhaps just as slow but no problems re-texturing. If you don't it's not impossible (though I haven't done it with hair - more with grass) - Specular has to be right, otherwise it would just be a matter of testing
