Is this driving anybody else crazy? Certain hair brands in Second Life have horrible alpha glitch issues! As you can see from my photo above, the glitch is unavoidable, unless Second Life and/or the creators figure out a fix. I don’t have this problem with all hair brands, just some.
Top: Hair alpha glitch with LeLutka HD brows on
Right: Hair alpha glitch with alpha lashes (HD brows removed)
Bottom: Hair is away from my face so it’s not caused by ‘intersecting’ prims
I always wear the LeLutka HD brows, and the alpha glitch causes the HD brows layer to disappear. Then my friend told me to take off HD brows, which I reluctantly did cos I love HD brows, and the hair still glitches with my alpha lashes! OH MY GOD.
Then she said I should move the hair/bangs away from my face, but it is not anywhere near my face.
This past weekend, I stumbled upon the Kuni hair sale and bought everything without demo’ing. BIG MISTAKE. The hair glitch is driving me insane and they’re unusable to me. I’m not willing to fix these alpha glitches in post-processing.
Can designers or Second Life fix this? Is this alpha glitch preventing you from enjoying some hairstyles in SL? Let me know in the comments!
UPDATE! There is a fix!
Fabulous blog reader Gabi Fitzgerald left me a tip in the comments…
“I can usually fix this glitch when the hair has an on/off button for materials on the HUD. I just turn it off and back on.” -Gabi
This tip works! I will try this with different hairs now. Do you know about this tip? I have never heard of this before. This saves me tons of frustrations. I guess this tip only works when the hair HUD has materials on/off button. So be on the lookout for that!
