Fyber – Hair Grooming – Sony Pictures Imageworks

Tuesday | 2022 01 25 | Technology

Fyber is Sony Pictures Imageworks’ proprietary, standalone software solution for grooming hair and fur of 3D animated characters. Fyber aims to combine the two traditional workflows of hair grooming by allowing the artist to go back and forth between procedural and artistic sculpting workflows.

Fyber was developed to address the need for a faster, more interactive, and more artist-friendly tool to generate any kind of hair, ranging from a character’s head hair to fully furred animals, with the goal to significantly lower grooming times and an easier learning experience for new artists.

As a node-based software, Fyber offers great flexibility to achieve any look an artist might desire while also providing fast visual feedback thanks to its highly multi-threaded computation graph and integrated OpenGL and Arnold viewports.
