gFur PRO supports static meshes, skeletal meshes, animated morph targets and has an advaced shader that allows you to blend between two sets of fur strand thicknesses and fur tiling. Further, there is support for fur clumping, wind effect and the package contains a few more fur patterns and noise textures.


Changelog:

3.8.1
