I am using XGen regular not XGen groomable. I can get it to work with the groomable version.
How do you change the base color for for when using Xgen and ai Standard Hair shader? If you input a texture for the Base Color it adds it vertically from base to tip. Adding to the diffuse does the same thing.
I tried following this tutorial but it is very out of date. https://docs.arnoldrenderer.com/display/A5AFMUG/Assigning+Color+to+Splines. Is there a more recent version?
