Hair Tool 2.0.10 for Blender 2.8 Full Version

Hair Tool 2.0.10 for Blender 2.8 Full Version

I developed Hair Tool, addon for Blender, to simplify creation process of low/medium poly hair models

This addon will help you generate hair mesh ribbons with uv’s from bezier/nurbs curves. It is how most current games are doing hairs for characters.

For blender 2.8 use Hair Tool 2.0.x series. For blender 2.79 use HT 1.9.x.

Features:

  • ability interactively groom hair ribbons based on blender particle hairs
  • generating hair ribbons guided by grid mesh surfaces
  • ability to uv unwrap and preview textures on hair curve ribbons
  • easy and convenient switching back and forth between curve ribbons and  mesh mesh, while preserving mesh uv’s
  • ability to adjust ribbons radius profile over strand length to taper the ribbons shape
  • ability to convert curves to blender Particle Hair system
  • Generating vertex color and weights gradients for ribbons.
  • and more

Part of $ I make on this addon wil go to Blender Foundation (I think around 20%).

Basic workflow is:

  • create grid mesh (quad only) in basic shape of hair, that will be source of hair curves
  • mark one of border edges as sharp – it will be root of generated hair
  • Use button ‘Curves from surface’ – to generate curves. Play with F6 setting to vary the look, amount of splines
  • Generate hair ribbons by pressing ‘Hair setup’ button.
  • If you want to switch to mesh version of you curve based ribbons, press ‘Curves to Ribbons’ button.
