Alembic Hair Groom Plugin for Unreal Engine 4-5

Alembic Hair Groom Plugin for Unreal Engine 4-5 3D model



When I buy something, I read the description carefully. If I bought it and want to put it in a program that is not mentioned in the description - I do it at my own risk. Which means - if I bought it and it doesn't work - no claims to the author. I just bought it and use it where it is intended. Or if it works - I'm satisfied with it.... and don't disturb an author.

This is a Real-Time Hairstyle only for cinematic rendering in interiors or exteriors. I will prepare next asset for Metahumans =) If you want to transfer this asset to MetaHumans, just watch this video instruction.

You should import the model with this settings - Then you don't have to change the coordinates of the hair. You need to bind them to the character through the Groom Component. And animate the character. The hairstyle itself is not in the zero system, because I positioned it at the level of the head of a standard female character. But if this creates problems, let me know - I will do this hairstyle under the zero system.

The pack includes:

  • Alembic files - from 11K to 120K hairs(30-70CV per guide)
  • Unreal Engine 4.26.2 scene with a mannequin and the hair model + improved Epic shader with which you can add albedo texture, vertex paint from Ornatrix + edit root and tip color separately.
  • Maya 2020 project - for editing the hair and transfer it to any character (Ornatrix
  • 3ds max 2019 project - (Ornatrix
  • Cinema r23 project - (Ornatrix ) (put this folder to Content in your project)
  • - updated hair shader for Unreal 5.1
  • - updated hair shader for Unreal 5.2 (put this folder to content)
  • - updated hair shader for Unreal 5.3

You can use it either for your self-education in cinematic hair production or for personal and commercial projects with some tweaks for your character.

I really hope that you will find it useful, I would appreciate any feedback! Also, check out other hairstyles in my shop.

Would this work with Metahumans in 5.3?

Yes, just import alembic to 5.3 and everything will work. About the shader - I still not tested it in 5.3. But soon will update the project to 5.3 =)

Great grooming work and custom hair material, lots of parameters & tuning opportunities. I originally only needed the main hair material and could find a solution that fits on my character's hair with it. I needed white hair that I could fine tune and that reacts well with natural light. - And there's still a lot more to explore with this package! - So I do indeed recommend it!
