Master the art of AAA hair

Master the art of AAA hair
Creating hair can be a tedious and time consuming process till you see the end result. In this course, you will be taught a generalized pipeline for hair evolved from the years of experience working on AAA titles like Control, Ghost of Tsushima, Injustice 2, The Walking Dead, Layers of fear 2 to name a few. Right from collecting references to the end presentation, you will be guided step by step that will prepare you to confidently make your very own high quality hair for personal or professional practices.

You will be taken through the full process of planning your work, creating hairs in Xgen, baking the hairs into textures, creating a hair asset, and finally putting it into Unreal Engine. The class will contain both practical workflows and theoretical mindsets to help you master the skills necessary for real-time hair creation.
