A Hello and a Hair/Fur/NCloth question
First, I'd like to say "hello". This isn't my first time to this forum, but it is my first time posting.
I've recently picked up and started learning Maya. For a large part of the personal project that I've been doing, I've been able to glean what I needed to learn either from following examples I've found or by just reading the "getting started" instructions that come with the program.
The problem is, I'm getting to a point where I'm not entirely sure what I need to learn in order to proceed efficiently.
My question for this topic is whether I should use fur, hair, ncloth, or a custom plugin to simulate hair in maya. The model is detailed, but is a cartoon/anime style, and I'd like to keep that overall feel. I had planned on making the hair from regular geometry and then using ncloth to simulate natural movement. This model will eventually go into a game, ideally.
Is this feasible? Recommended? There are some other fur-covered areas I will be adding later that I would like to use the same technique for, and I'd like to nail down where my focus should be. Apologies in advance if this was asked before. I've done my due diligence and haven't found anything to exactly answer my question yet.
