HairStrips creator for Maya
AKA Tools has released HairStrips Creator, a new tool for Maya that allows the user to create bands of polygons for real-time hair effects. Several procedural controls are available including the ability to automatically aligns strips based on surface normals; the ability to control base and tip Width, length, the number of X and Y segments, bend, twist, orient offset, adaptive width and adaptive XY Segments. Each of these parameters can be controlled globally or locally. The script costs $20 from Gumroad.
