Ornatrix 3dsmax V5 is Released
« on: March 04, 2017, 10:31:34 AM »
After one and a half years of development and testing Ornatrix 3dsmax V5 is here! This next great iteration of our flagship hair, fur, and feathers software is available immediately and is chalk full of new features and improvements. We made strides in bettering the guide editing workflow, hair data channel management, and groom flexibility.

Some of the highlights are:
New parametric guide data modifier for LOD and easy control of groom components
Hair from particles object adds another dimension to making hair by tracing any 3dsmax particle system
Alembic cache import for applying and layering baked hair animations
Strand propagation improvements keep the hair relationships intact down the evaluation pipeline for easier feathers and vegetation
Mirroring and brush-specific settings significantly improve brush-based workflow
Surface comb sink mirroring and control over shape and rotations make styling fur faster and better
Push away from surface modifier keeps the hair out of any object to improve realism
Single-button detaching of a groom allows you to edit base surface meshes in any way you like while keeping the hair intact
Single-button locking to surface future proofs your grooms and makes rendering consistent across different systems
New curve ramp diagrams with presets give you greater control across many Ornatrix parameters
Single-button vertex color or guide channel creation makes connecting hair attributes to your object data a snap

There are many more features and fixes for you to review in our complete V5 change log .
