In a Tutorial I am watching https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ebx2qbBlvh0 Hair Particles are mentioned (15.5 min), Brownian to be exact, but I can´t find them in Blender 3.0. Is that option gone?hair particles I want to add some hair to my teddy. What I don´t understand is why later on the Hair BDSF is used.

You have to check Advanced under the particle system to enable additional panes like Rotation and Physics.

The Hair BSDF is a pre-made shader containing the components required to recreate the surface response shown by most hair or fur. Specifically the Hair BSDF contains a reflective and a transmissive component.

  • $\begingroup$ Is the Principled Hair BSDF even required for this? I found Brownian and put some numbers in, but no hair appears. I am a bit confused about how to use the BSDF: $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 17, 2022 at 18:14
  • $\begingroup$ ... should I add it to the node stack of the mesh or create a whole seperate node? In the video it seems like he uses an extra space for the Principled Hair BSDF. $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 17, 2022 at 18:21
  • $\begingroup$ It's often useful to start a new scene and put a simple hair system on the default cube to toy with settings. Much less taxing on your system and you can toss everything at the end. $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 17, 2022 at 18:30
  • $\begingroup$ The particle system should also be set to hair instead of emitter, if you hadn't seen that yet $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 17, 2022 at 18:31
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, I did that. It´s pretty basic. $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 25, 2022 at 20:49
