I'm running 2008 compete and I have a polygon head which i would like to paint/attach hair to, is it true that you can only use paint effects on nurbs surfaces? If so is there any way of converting a polygon model to nurbs?
If you make another object, like a sphere, to represent the scalp, you can paint on this and then make it invisible, then you can have it as large or small as you want so the hair appears to be coming from the actual head geometry.
