Hair animation
« on: November 26, 2014, 09:22:54 AM »
A friend asks me how to animate hair, undulate for example.
She likes work on photos for a 'real' effect, and i know she has PSP. I can not find anything on the net about it.  :luvbooks:
PSP is enough? And if yes, with which 'layer'?
Otherwise, what other software she could use?

Hummm...Never thought of doing that but I'll look at my Tuts for PSP XVII and see what I can come up with.

Is it rendered hair or painted hair? Don't suppose it really matters because ultimately, you can use Photoshop to improve on it.

If it's rendered hair try to get the most movement you can in Poser or DAZ.

Rendered or painted, open it up in Photoshop and select parts of it that are blowing out the way you want to extend it. Copy the selection and paste it as a new layer. Always select MORE than what you need, because you'll need to erase some of it to blend it in.

Now if you want to change the angle of the piece you just copied to fit in with other existing hair, select the piece with Control T and then right click the selection and pick Rotate from the drop down. Rotate like you want it and then pick some other command from the menu (like the Magnifying Glass or Eraser) and it will ask if you want to apply the transformation. Accept - or not if you want to start again.

You can also use the Warp and Distort and Perspective tools with Control T (Transform) to change the way the hair flows. Be careful with Warp or you'll end up 'crossing the bottom into the top. Just pull at the squares a little at a time.

Once you have it like you want it, erase what you don't need with Soft Eraser at maybe 75% opacity. Size depends on size of selection and how much you want to erase. This will blend it in.

If you have gaps in places or need to touch it up, use the Clone Brush tool. Select a part from the original layer that lies the way you want to 'curve' the touched up part.  Use Soft Brush at about 75-80% on Clone Brush. Don't use the Hard Brushes.

It takes a bit of practice but you can do it this way.

It's on pictures or photos.
She hopes succeed like a never ending animation. She has PSP. And for the moment, she has almost a complete animation.

 :ty_luv: Ravyn, i say her to try with PSP.

That's probably the best bet for photos too. It can be done. It just takes some practice :)
