This is my grooming - a project for REPLIKR from New Zealand - https://www.replikr.com/ , which I did in Unreal Engine 4 using the groom plugin and Ornatrix alembic in Maya.

 

Render time - 13 hours at 2626 frames.

 

Sampling - 1 Spatial ? 32 Temporal AA.

 

Hair count:

Baby - 548, Main - 74 151, Ponytail - 19 957

 

I'll do more when I figure out how to increase the FPS of the viewport =) For regular hair in Arnold - I use 400K hair =) for better quality and a subtle realistic look.

Special thanks to Charles from Epic Games for his help with rendering settings and fighting insane shadow flickering.

I created the hair in Ornatrix Maya, then exported it to Alembic and imported it using the Groom Plugin.

Shading / Texturing / Rendering - Unreal Engine 4.26.1

The character, eyelashes, eyebrows were prepared by the customer.

 

The term for this hairstyle is 5 days + 3 days to transfer the hairstyle to another character.
