Hair Strand Designer is a tool by Robert Ramsay that creates hair strands in the form of 4k texture maps ready for placing onto hair cards. The tool generates an RGB Masking system for Color Variation, Root Mask and Tip Mask.

Strand Designer is also said to create a Color Map, Normal Map, Depth Map, ID Map and Mask Map. Users get control of waviness, tapering, scale, variation, coloring, spacing, thickness, length and number of strands in 8 possible sets.

There’s a Polycount forum topic for more details here.

Functions: F1 – “View/Enter custom seed value (Randomization ON creates a new seed number, enter your own seed number then disable Randomization, then click generate to see your own seed value represented).

Once generated, save out your maps and recombine them however you like in Photoshop/Gimp.”

Processing textures created in Hair Strand Designer:

These textures also work well with the Hair Shader Pack we’ve featured a couple of days ago.

You can learn more about the tool and get it for $5+ here.

    Hi all, Robert here, the developer of this tool. I have recently added a realtime limited previewer, Flow maps, AO maps, Quickload (F11) and Quicksave (F12) functionality to the editor.

    The price got raised to $6.50 Standard and $9.00 Commercial.

    Thanks!
