Hair particle system settings.

Number
Set the amount of hair strands. Use as little particles as possible, especially if you plan to use soft body animation later. But you need enough particles to have good control. For a „normal“ haircut I found some thousand (very roughly 2000) particles to give enough control. You may need a lot more particles if you plan to cover a body with fur. Volume will be produced later with Children.
Hair Length
Controls how long the hair are.
Emit From
Vertices
Emits hair particles from the vertices of a mesh. When using this the distribution settings (see below) are not available.
Faces
Emits hair particles from the surface of a mesh’s faces.
Volume
Emits hair particles from the volume of an enclosed mesh.
Random
Hair particles are emitted in a random order.
Even Distribution
Hair particle distribution is made even based on surface area of the elements, i.e. small elements emit less particles than large elements, so that the particle density is even.
Distribution
Jittered

Particles are placed at jittered intervals on the emitter elements.

Particles/Face
Number of emissions per face (0 = automatic).
Jittering Amount
Amount of jitter applied to the sampling.
Random
Particles are emitted from random locations in the emitter’s elements.
Use Modifier Stack

Take any Modifiers above the Particle Modifier in the modifier stack into account when emitting particles.

Bemerkung

Note that particles may differ in the final render if these modifiers generate different geometry between the viewport and render.
