Hi guys! Could you help me, I've got a problem with hair object and I can't find a solution anywhere.
I have a complex object with hair (a lot of!), dynamics and hair-to-hair collisions. I clicked "Calculated cache" in the hair object, it went through all the frames, took more than a day. C4D didn't respond all that time, but it didn't crash (the current frame changed, everything looked fine). But now it started calculating again from the first frame! And it still doesn't respond.
I have no idea what to do. I don't know how to stop the process, and I don't want to force quit the app because it will destroy all the cache and I'll waste too much time to calculate it again.
Sometimes there is a way to send requests when the frame advances. You can keep pressing or try holding down command+W. If the scene has changed at all since the last save then this will invoke the "do you want to save changes...." dialog. The great thing is that once that dialog is active, command+W will no longer work until you click a button.
Save the file, close and reopen it. If you pressed play then reopening will continue to play forward which could be a problem. In that case, create a new scene and merge the original into it.
This could be an issue with display in the viewport vs collision calculation time. Do you have the hair display mode site to guides or the actual hair lines or geo?
