Overview

 

Use the Fiber Lab to create a variety of fiber-based materials such as hair, fur, grass, and hay.  This node is available in the Pro and Studio editions of Genetica.

 

Like many Lab Nodes, Fiber Lab will maintain the transparency of its input.  The following illustration shows how a Solid Color node set to full transparency can be placed into the Fiber Lab's Background input to create transparent areas behind the fibers.
