Product Information

  • Required Products: None

dForce Volta Hair and Beard for Genesis 8 is a wonderful and stylized hair for your characters!

dForce Volta Hair is a rigged and morphing dForce strands model of a messy, layered, long hair, which comes with the Volta Hat, a parented prop model of a tricorn hat. The hair's bangs(fringe) and shoulder sections have an articulate rig consisting of 5 custom bones, and the hair conforms to the character's neck and collar movements.

The Volta Beard includes 6 morph settings for different beard lengths, plus wearable matchsticks with lit and unlit settings to give your character an extra fearsome look.

Get the dForce Volta Hair and Beard for Genesis 8 for your next sailing, pirate, or adventure scene! Notes:

ERC dial sliders help fit your figure poses beyond the 16 sample hair poses provided. The dForce hair is grown on a skull cap which is fitted for Genesis 8 Male(s) & Female(s) (.DUF) and auto-follows most character head shapes.

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.”

    • 3. dForce Starter Essentials content is installed and up to date.

    • 5. If you are doing viewport renders instead of final (new window or direct to file) renders, apply my “Preview Render On” preset (sets “Viewport Tesselation” 2+ and “PR Preview” on.)
    • 6. System check by loading the free simple mohawk in a new empty scene and test if that renders for you. (Installed with dForce Starter Essentials and found in Content LIbrary > [your library] > People > Genesis 8 Male > Hair > Strand-Based Hair Samples - and also in the Genesis 8 Female folder.)
  • Useage Tips:
    • Fit the hat to the character and apply the “Hat On” preset to the hair.
    • Use the dForce hair bones or ERC sliders to pose with or without dForce simulation.
    • Use dForce wind node to create further movement in the hair.
    • You can easily modify hair colors by selecting your own diffuse color settings for the hair.
    • After posing, use the style and movement morph dials to match you figure's pose and also ensure fitting.
    • You need at least one light in the scene that will provide the specular highlighting!
