Maya 2013 now features nHair, a curve-based hair system built on the Nucleus framework, so it easily interacts with other n modules, such as nCloth and nParticles.
How can this help your work?
nHair is quicker and more interactive to set up, and can be styled much easier by using the interactive simulation mode. Set up constraints on the verts of the hair, hit interactive simulation, and move the constraint around. Instant style!
See the beginning of the video below for more info.
