Alpha Hair
How can I make good looking hair in Esenthel?

I'm trying to make something like this
http://wiki.polycount.com/HairTechnique
specifically this
http://www.paultosca.com/varga_hair.html
but none technique used in esenthel seems to work.

I'm need something like alpha test with 8-bit transparency (non esenthel 1-bit) or blend with depth testing.

Is possible to do something like this in Esenthel?
Or is there any other method to make good looking hair?

RE: Alpha Hair
You've tried playing around with the blend technique on the material in Esenthel? That shouldn't be an issue.

RE: Alpha Hair
You mean?
Blend technique don't do depth sorting, so sometimes hairs look very strange, since back elements are draw over front elements. There is "Test Blend Light" technique but using 1-bit alpha transparency and some strange smoothing. If you know how make effect I mentioned in first post, please tell me.
