Can anyone tell me why my hair particles are growing out so thick? I am using a mesh that I retopologized for the purposes of easy animation and brought the number to 22,000 polys. This particular mesh is a duplicated emitter to be hidden for the fully rigged mesh. On the previous mesh the hair grew perfectly fine, which was a decimated 100,000 poly mesh. I tried subdividing the mesh that I retopologized, but that had no effect on the matter. The hair cannot be thinned out so much to adjust to its over thick default settings. It causes the fur to be all patchy looking when the tip is scaled in the particle shape tab.
If anyone has any ideas to the matter I would greatly appreciate it.
