A little experiment with combing both fur (V-Ray fur in this case) with nHair! I wanted to explore this a bit because I expect this sort of combo will be the direction I choose to go (unless I go with stylized fur shapes built into the geometry.)
It's quite crude, but I was mostly interested in seeing if I could get the two to blend together well, visually. Eh, not exactly successful. Plus, it's way to bright looking.
I also took the opportunity to play around with V-Ray fur shading and Hair shader some more. Now that I'm past the initial hardships, I feel much better about the two! They do make some things a bit easier, even if they don't solve all my problems. The real question is whether they justify switching to V-Ray.
