Maya Hair to Bifrost Strands Instancer

Here is a quick little example of how you can use the latest Bifrost 2.2 version to "import" Maya curves into bifrost and do some interesting rigging/cfx workflows with it. In this example, I use the nHair output curves as strands input in a bifrost graph that instances objects along the strand tangents. 





You can check the attached scene file for the workflow. The free rebel_pack and MJCG compounds are required to open the scene correctly.

may I ask if the example file you shared is working correctly? somehow, the bifrost node on scene does not seem to exist ( with rebel_pack and MJCG compounds ). If you do not mind, can you check?

Hi @Anonymous ,

The scene from @sachin.shrestha was using an older version of MJCG compounds was not forward compatible with 2.0. I updated it to work with the latest version. I attached Sachin's scene working with the latest MJCG compounds version.

The only difference is that the instance geometry must now be facing the positive Z axis instead of the positive X axis.
