Thank you mtd, dll, DA and TL :smiley: Made my day!


The trick is to render two renders - one with hair only and the other one with the hat only on no backgrounds - just plain .pngs. Then you have to very carefully erase the top of the hair and whatever may stick out the sides toward the hat brim blending the side hair into where it goes down to the shoulder. I think you'll get the idea.

Undo and start over if you have to - like you take too much hair off. You can also put the hat on Screen and make it about 30-40 % so you can see through it where the hat is in relation to the hair. It takes some practice but you can do it. I also left the shadow of the brim over her forehead as it rendered. That was the hardest part about that one.
