Meshmod - add Beard facial hair

Postby WuHT » Fri Jun 02, 2017 5:09 am

I have a model where I want to add facial hair (mustache+beard).

If I affix the facial hair to the neck upper bone, the issue would be when I adjust the jaws/lips/mouth corner the beard doesn't move.

The model I originally got it from (smd) never had facial bones in the first place except for the jaw bone. I figured this was important to bring up.

Is there anything I can do at this point to properly attach it to the face? I'm thinking if I can't solve this I could just try to "paint" the beard onto the face texture but thats my last resort. I've seen other models with a seperate transparent mesh and it conforms to the jawline properly
Otherwise i'm stuck with having a very stern no-nonsense expression.

Does anyone want me to upload my progress ?
I appreciate all help provided

Use the process I shared here:
Bone weight copy the beard to the face, but make sure the beard has no weights when you do it or it will error.
All I wanna do, is come runnin' home to you, come runnin' home to you.
And all my life I promise to, keep runnin' home to you, keep runnin' home to you.
