Bad refresh with rendered hair

Applies To: XSI 3.0 and later.

Symptom

If you intend on splitting a scene with Hair Dynamics in parts for rendering, eg.: frame 1-30, 31-60, 61-90 etc., in every first and second frame on a series the hair may jump or pop out of place.

Cause

By default live mode is set on the cache mode in the dynamic hair properties. You will have to adjust this.

Solution

Prior to rendering, follow these steps:

  1. Remove all cached files
  2. Set the cache mode to "Read/Write", then play to create the cached files
  3. Set the cache mode to read only.
