Creating mesh hair for SL

Question

Hello, I wish to ask if there are any open text or video tutorials about hair creation. Mostly I'm interested in the UV mapping details, how to unwrap the geometry to make it fit the most hair textures in SL and so, make it easier to retexture. Thanks!

You'll find ideas here and there in the Mesh subforum and the Building & Texturing subforum of the Creation forum.  Search their archives.

Thank you. Yet, understand that these subforums have hundreds of pages and most of topics have noting in common with my question, not even close. I meet a number ofdifficulties checking through them all, considering English is not even my first langage. So, I started this topic in case someone can advice something particular. Cheers :)

Maybe all three!

In truth, it was a quick Google search on "creating mesh hair for Second Life".

One thing you never see with hair is cleanup of hidden faces which can remove 40 - 70% of triangles with the hair strand making method shown in the video which lead to a 246 Ktri hairset.

I have yet to see any hairset in SL with cleaned up triangles on the insides.

WHA? That way you don't have the hair double sided, and nobody wants game grade optimized content :sarcasm:
