Ok, so Lightwave 9.5 is so cool. In particular the new FiberFx, which is a hair/fur system that is intuitive, flexible and very powerful. It took a little while to find as Newtek neglected to include the documentation for it. I found a pdf file on the internet which give more information and help. It mentions there are four plugins for the system but I only seem to have two. After a little fiddling around I was able to create the hair/fur quite quickly and easily. And you can use the plugin on practically an object.

The image above is the result of about half an hour’s work.  A few minutes in LWCAD and the house was available, a couple of textures later and then I was playing around with the FiberFX plugin, which is very easy to use and all the options are well laid out. The whole plugin is a breeze.
