Videotutorial: Basic Hair Settings


By Matt Heimlich.

Matt writes:

I've just completed my first training video for hair in Blender which I've been planning for several months now. It's a pretty comprehensive overview of the basic hair system settings, and should be very useful for anyone from a beginning user, to an intermediate-level user who has never really played with hair particles. I plan on making it an entire series that will also cover the new Cycles hair patch. Anyway, thought you guys might be interested in sharing it with the Blender community. Thanks!

I have a LONG history with Blender – I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-)


  1. Cool. I've played around with hair particles a little bit, but don't know a lot about getting them to look nice. This looks like a good tutorial (series) to learn it though!
