Rest Mix Hair Problem

When I hit play the hair strands seems to loosen up from the way they were styled and do what they want.  I want them to stay put as they look when you hit the update guides button. I have my dynamics rest mix set to 100% and it seems to be keeping the guides in place but not the hairs. Is there a control like rest mix, to slide between a styled frozen state and free open dynamics, that would effect the hairs? (Hair Object - Part Seam Left was the one I was testing with)

Hi dpochtrager,

Thanks for the file. I’m catching up after my break; sorry for the delay.

I’m not sure what or how the outcome should be.

Have you tried “Hair> Dynamics> Rigid”?

I assume you like to have some Dynamics; if not, switch it off.

If off:
You can use the PoseMorph, set to points.
Then style the hair as you like and set the PoseMorph to animate.
Now you have complete control over the outcome.

For any further questions, please use the new Forum:

Happy New Year!
