Can't link Fur Description to Different UV Set.

Attached is a picture, which is pretty clear.

I want to attach two fur descriptions to one object. One description is allover, while the other is only for the eyebrows. I have already created different UV sets for these, and have the allover fur attached.

The problem is that when I attach the eyebrow fur, it attaches to the allover UV set. When I try to attach it to the correct set in the Relationship Editor, it moves BOTH the eyebrow fur, and the allover fur to the eyebrow UV set.

So frustrating...

You could just duplicate the face mesh for the eye brows then attach the fur to that............dave

I could, but that sounds like a rendering nightmare to me. Any other suggestions?

Have you tried painting a density map?

Imagination is more important than knowledge.

I've tried using the paint fur tool if that's what you're suggesting. Haven't had much luck with it; I haven't been able to achieve much control over it. It will paint in patches, and it's unclear how many clicks are needed to cover areas. It also won't reduce the baldness/desnity in some areas to completely 0. It will get close, but it's no 'smooth shave'.

Is there another way of going about doing that? Do you have a link to a tutorial?
