Default Fur Question

Okay guys, I am technically not a newbie but rather oldschool, but I have not used Maya for years and years and just now came back to the lovely "scene".

To update myself I am building my apartment with all that entails and trying to remember everything. I gave my girlfriend a teddybear which I am now working on recreating but have some serious problems with the fur.

I cant remember anything and the little I remember of the fur function does not really work as I want it to. I rarely ever used it previously so I did not really care.

Problem is that I have the teddybear and when trying to apply fur to it, either specific face or the entire thing ONLY ONE FACE gets the fur.. Why?

I've been reading the online documentation and its pretty straightfoword and this is neither getting mentioned and there is no solution to it. I even dusted of some old books to try to find the problem but my ignorance is clearly to much.


I included a picture of a mockup so you can see the problem. In this render I choose the ENTIRE thing to be furred but only the FRONT faces got fur, if I chose ANY of the other faces (instead of the entire poly) I get the exact same thing, no difference.

Best Regards

With fur you have to layout Uv's
otherwise Maya doesn'y know how to aplly the Fur.
Maya dynamics are pretty volatile, but if you get it to work for you you can get some nice results

Can you give me a helping hand, some encouraging words perhaps?

And a step by step guide I knew there was a reason I never bothered with the fur, its like being a virgin again its pathetic.


It just seems to go into chaos as soon as I apply it.
