    [WIP] Hair Material with anisotropic reflections

    UPDATE: Release thread here -> https://forums.unrealengine.com/show...-Hair-Material

    Hi all!

    I'm making an anisotropic reflections hair material since few days ago. (Maybe some of you see it in My Twitter)





    First gradient color test



    Update 2



    My actual roadmap:

    Hair color
    [X] Solid color
    [X] Gradient color
    [ ] Color by texture

    Light
    [X] Lit mode (actually unlit only for maximize light control)
    [X] Light color affects material
    [X] Light intensity affects material

    Reflections control
    [X] Different textures for anisotropic control (more real hair, anime style...)
    [ ] Flow Maps for aniso direction

    Mask
    [X] Anisotropic reflections masking for maximize control
    [ ] Better alpha mask, using SSS for "smooth" cutout

    Material instance
    [X] Instancing the material

    Blueprint for Light Source
    [ ] Point light compatibility (actually sun light only)
    [ ] Auto-select primary light source (intensity, distance...)


    I would like to share my hair material with the community when I finished it.

    I hope that this material will be useful for people's projects

    If you like how my hair project is progressing, please tell me what do you think and also you could...

    Super awesome...lots of improvements on skin in UE4 I was starting to get worried no one would update the hair....Great job...

    what's the Paypal email address...English being my only language that link takes me to a page that's a little hard to understand....

        Hair has certainly been problematic in UE4. The projects I have seen were far too glossy. This is definitely a more natural reflection.

              Wow, this is what I was looking for. How did you manage to get anisotropic shading in UE4 while it doesn't support it?

                      Thanks

                      I hope to have a basic version in one or two weeks, it depends if I found many troubles in the process

                      In any case, I will update this thread with new progress soon

                          Thanks

                          I read some documents about hair reflections and techniques (Kajiya-kay, Scheuermann, and some HLSL) and I tested some times until it worked, classic trial and error method
