Check out this model crafted by MountainDog Studios with real-time fur cards.
MountainDog Studios presented Mounti, an adorable 3D puppy created as the studio mascot. They crafted the model for Unreal Engine 5 with real-time fur cards.
"We took realistic-looking fur as a challenge to make it in real-time in UE5 with alpha textures. We have developed our own shaders for the fur to get the best look possible with cards for games," wrote the team.
The goal was to set up believable results with cards. All the screenshots you can see in the article are taken from Unreal Engine 5 viewport. MountainDog Studios plans to share more fur stuff and breakdowns in the future.
"We made a 4K fur alpha texture with different fur shapes in it. We placed them one by one in Maya according to the concept. It was taking time but we were focused on getting realistic results with just alpha cards."
