I have Just got the Hairnet extension but everytime I try to add the hair it says somethings missing, have I done something wrong? Could someone tell me how Hairnet?

    $\begingroup$ Hi, I honestly know nothing about this addon, but here wiki.blender.org/index.php/Extensions:2.6/Py/Scripts/Objects/… the wiki says "A rectangular mesh used to make a hair system must have one boundary edge marked as a seam. If an example mesh 4 faces wide and 3 faces tall is to be used, the bottom row of edges could be marked with a seam", so, did if this applies to your case, you set that seam? $\endgroup$ – m.ardito Nov 17 '17 at 8:12

I tried the addon, here it seems to work.

If you set a seam on the "plane hair guide", like this (note:I highlighted in red the "plane hair guide", in blue the "emitter")

enter image description here

then, in object mode, be sure to apply all transformations to the objects (location, rotation, scaling)

then you select those two in that order, and press this button

enter image description here

you should get something like this

which renders like this in blender render

enter image description here

I noticed though, that if you select the "emitter" (eg the head) first and after the "plane hair guide" (eg a custom shape) you get an error like "no seams were defined in plane", because it needs to be selected in the opposite way: first the "plane hair guide" (eg a custom shape), and then the "emitter" (eg the head).

Otherwise, please describe how you set it up, or share the file on http://blend-exchange.giantcowfilms.com/, then paste the provided link editing your question: I'll take a look.

  • $\begingroup$ That seemed to work, sort of, except the hair is in the wrong spot, its in the middle of the circle, not on the edge. $\endgroup$ – Breanna Kramer Nov 22 '17 at 8:43
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, that happened to me, but I forgot, as suggested, to apply all transformations (location, rotation, scale). After doing that, it was OK: try and report the result. I added this in the answer, too. $\endgroup$ – m.ardito Nov 22 '17 at 9:44
  • $\begingroup$ OH YEAH, I forgot about that bit, thanks heaps. $\endgroup$ – Breanna Kramer Nov 24 '17 at 6:03
  • $\begingroup$ How do you do it when the mesh guides have different lengths? $\endgroup$ – Breanna Kramer Nov 24 '17 at 7:16
  • $\begingroup$ I never tried, I just installed this to help you :) But this is also a different issue, and it needs to be explained in a different question, as this site requires a single question for each post... Open a new question, and there if you can share your file (see the end of my answer) I could take a look, and hopefully find a solution... meanwhile, if my answer helped, consider upvoting it, and if it solved you issue, you could accept it, so to show others, in the future, if it was helpful content. $\endgroup$ – m.ardito Nov 24 '17 at 7:34
