Look At My Hair preset for the Hivewire3D House Cat. Long-Haired version. 

Hair Export Amount: I like 1200,000 but feel free to experiment. It WILL take a long time to export. Keep an eye on your memory. 

WARNING: Presets will work on Kitten, but choose a MUCH smaller amount to export, such as 500,000 or LESS. 500,000 ran my memory out on the kitten, but 100,000 was not enough hair. 

Iray settings:

Translucency Weight: Between 0.050 and 0.10 (Depends on coat colour and lighting)
Glossy Reflectivity: 0.10

Feel free to tinker with settings or try hair shaders. I haven't done any 3DL testing.

LMH

Erm, is there a way to make the fur show up in iRay? I read that only AM's stuff has a Catalyser program to make it work. Or is the export thing it? D:>

Thanks to your inspiration and hard work VS, I'm picking away at making LAMH presets for the various HW Big Cats.  This is the Cougar.  Mainly need to do some work on the ears and then adjust all for a cub preset.  I am making presets customized to each HW Big Cat breed as I have discovered no one preset works well for all.

Wait -- what on Earth are you praising me for? :p You're the one doing all the hard work creating amazing (understatement) textures and fur presets for EVERYTHING! I just made two free mediocre cat fur presets. :p 

Just to reiterate - I've been super impressed with everything you're doing, and not just texturing, but your LAMH work. You're killing it! <3

LOL VS- BUT I doubt I would have tried to tackle it if you hadn't done the HW Cat. You def inspired me to try harder to make it work for me:) I had been really struggling with the head/face areas, but finally I am starting to get the hang and feel of the LAMH tools better, and that wouldn't have happened if you hadn't encouraged me to try harder:) And thanks so much!!!

I very much doubt that!  Just take the hair on this cat for example!

Hahaha! Oh, I remember! (I have dogs now - no hairballs - just furry tumbleweeds that roll around the house)

If it were black with a white chest blaze, it would look like three of our eight cats.  I'm at a loss...how do I download your LAMH settings for this, or have I misunderstood.

Incredible work, and thank you very much.

Hi! Sorry for the late reply! Did you figure it out? You just copy my settings, not download them. :)
