Product Information

  • Required Products: None

Qiana Hair for Genesis 3 and 8 Females is a morphing polygonal model of a high ponytail with heavy fringe (bangs). The fringe may be hidden for a sleeker look. The hair's sections have an articulate rig consisting of 103 custom bones. Easy Pose ERC dial/sliders help fit your figure poses beyond the 65 sample pose presets. The hair is fitted for Genesis 3 and 8 Females (.DUF) with auto-conforming custom morphs for Daz Original characters.

The long ponytail is split into 6 sections, each with 16 custom bones. Pose the tail sections by using the Style and Move ERC sliders, node transforms, or pose presets. Additionally, a dForce weight node is included with the hair so you may opt to use dForce cloth draping simulation to help settle the hair. Users may modify these dForce Simulation settings in the Surfaces pane.

This hair is compatible in style with Neve Hair.

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 are not included.

Set your style with Qiana Hair for Genesis 3 & 8 Females!
