Product Information

  • Required Products: None

dForce Lea Hair 2 is a set of new tails and morphs compatible with dForce Lea Hair. The original dForce Lea Hair with ponytail is not required. This set includes a long plait, a bun, a top knot, and extra fringe(bangs) style morphs. ERC pose control dials help fit your figure poses beyond the 48 sample hair poses provided. The dForce hair is grown on a skull cap which is fitted for Genesis 3 & 8 Female(s) (.DUF) and auto-follows most character head shapes. The long plait has an articulate rig consisting of 19 custom bones. Posing the plait is by using the bones with ERC sliders, node transforms, Active Pose Tool, or pose presets. The plaited section does not drape with dForce simulation, however the loose tail at the end can be draped with dForce. Similarly, the bun and topknot do not drape but the topknot wisps can drape. Users may modify these dForce Simulation settings in the Surfaces pane. A separate plait “Wearable” preset is provided so users can load multiple plaits on Genesis 3 & 8 Female(s). - When using the main bun+plait, select Genesis or the Leah Hair Base and apply the presets named “Lea2 …” - When using the extra plait, select the extra plait and apply the presets named “Lea2 Plait …” Iray and 3Delight diffuse color presets are included. You can modify the tints by changing the diffuse color of the hair. Characters, clothing, and environment not included. Please see notes below for “Additional Products used in Promo Images.”
