~Ponytail Girl~

Used the Bullet Physics engine in Poser Pro 2014 to animate the ponytail - something I could only dream of doing in Poser until now. :D

Figure is AnimeDoll. Hope you like it and thanks for coming by!

Hi!  I was wondering if you could share the basic steps for converting hair to dynamic like this?  Or any tips?

Sure, it's really simple, but you must have Poser 10 because the dynamic part was made with soft body dynamics from the Bullet physics engine. All you have to do is to apply soft body to the prop you want to animate, and then paint the weighted vertexes you want to be dynamic. To do this I've just followed the instructions from the Poser manual and it worked. ^___^

What were your settings for the soft body?  What offset did you give collisions?  I haven't been able to get a decent soft body sim on anything at all.

I set the entire prop to "1" (not dynamic), and then turn on live simulation. At this point nothing should happen because all the hair is self constrained. Now switch the brush to a very low value, like 0.1, and start painting the vertexes you want to be dynamic - always avoiding the parts where the meshes are disconnected from the prop, or else they will fall off the head. It's best to use a low weight brush and see the results in real time as you paint the weights. Avoid setting weights down to zero to large areas, or else the hair strands will loose their shape and look like draped cloth. ^^

Thanks! The new softbody dynamics offer a whole new line of possibilities in Poser. ^^

well, not only. hey, i looked at your gallery and,...wow! i'm gonna guess, by your art, that you're a teen guy around the age of, oh,15 to 18? i'm not a stalker, i'm just guessing based on what you post(seeing as it's mostly girls with little to no clothing and well, let's just say a "big chest area"). lol

Haha I see what you mean. It would make sense if only for one little detail - men start noticing women at that age, but it's not something that stops when we turn 20, 30, or even 40 - and I am talking on my own experience. ^_______^
