I'm making a character in Blender based off of Darrin Lile's character modeling series. However, instead of making an object for hair like he did, I decided to try using particle hair. However, when I try to render my hair, it does not show up. Can anyone help tell me what to fix? I'll include the blend file below.

  • $\begingroup$ Are you in edit mode with the hair object selected? I think there is a bug affecting that. $\endgroup$ – ajwood Oct 10 '15 at 13:43
  • $\begingroup$ Nope, I am in object mode and I have nothing selected, but when I attempt to render, it just does not appear. $\endgroup$ – Christopher Colborne Oct 11 '15 at 15:13

Did you try the convert button? That is the answer I keep seeing, Convert Cycles Hair Particle System to Mesh Object. Hope this helps I am new to blender so just reading through.... :)

  • $\begingroup$ I had to convert it so that I could parent the hair to my armature. But once I did that, it would not show up in the render. $\endgroup$ – Christopher Colborne Oct 11 '15 at 15:14
  • $\begingroup$ That is the solution I used in the end, but it still isn't as polished as the particle hair normally is. $\endgroup$ – Christopher Colborne Oct 11 '15 at 15:15
