According to the video, artists have control over features such as waviness, clumping, density and more. The horse hair simulation in the game uses multiple collision volumes which permit “proper interaction” interaction with the long hair of the mane and tail.

Riley, the combat dog in Call of Duty: Ghosts, was also groomed using HairWorks, as were the wolves which attack you in the game.
