Download Maya hair plugin Shave and a Haircut 9.6 free

Thursday, October 24th, 2019 | Posted by Jim Thacker

 
Epic Games has made Maya hair and fur plugin Shave and a Haircut 9.6 available to download for free.

The firm acquired the software – one of the first commercially available third-party hair tools, used by studios including Weta Digital and Double Negative – from original developer Joe Alter earlier this year.

Availability and system requirements
The downloadable version of Shave and a Haircut 9.6 is compatible with Maya 2017 and 2018 on Windows 8.1+, Linux and macOS 10.10.5 and 10.11.6. Epic has also released the Arnold, RenderMan and V-Ray shaders.

Both the source code and compiled binaries are available from Epic Games’ GitHub repo: to download them, you need to have created both an Epic Games account and a GitHub account and linked them.

The software is available under the Unreal Engine 4 EULA, so it’s free to download and use for non-interactive projects like film and TV work.

(Includes instructions on how to download the software)

 
Updated: The original version of this story mentioned that the EULA specifies a 5% payment of gross royalties beyond the first $3,000/quarter for any project released commercially, but Epic Games has been in touch to point out that this only applies to projects compiled using its technology, like games.
