Enza, are you the one that messaged me on facebook? Just pm me your mesh or start a thread in the creator help section of the forum, and send me a link, as a community, wed love it if we post the problem publicly as to make a solution available to everyone. Awaiting your response!
I would say that people making alpha hair often don't go for Blender as a main program. 3ds Max is the first choice as well as some that use Cinema 4d or another more advanced software. Blender is capable of rendering transparency issues actually, just nobody does because it's a bit tricky to set up the program. Here is a video on which settings you'd need to tweak:
Here is a transparency issue I induced to show that is possible:
You can fix it as the same you'd do in 3ds max. Going for each plane mesh, pressing P to split into a new group until you finish all of them. Then you regroup them in the correct order. Make sure to select first the ones in the top and last the ones in the background.
Again, as annabluu told you, this method is not the best to fix it simply because it's harder and Blender might not have the best render engine for this. However you can try to fix them going with this method and see were it goes if you don't have 3ds. It's not garanteed that you'd success but you can surely try.

Please do not PM me to help you with your creating problems. You can post in the Creators Help so everyone can see the problem and solution.
ah! how interesting! this can help a lot of people knowing they have the ability to fix it in blender. I had no idea it was possible; I even tried researching and doing my own experiments. thanks Mathcope

I'll have to give this a try. I attempted to place all layers in the order they should be from top to bottom, and that didn't work, so I did bottom to top, and I literally got the same result. Unfortunately, Blender is my only option. Maybe with these settings, though, I can finally figure it out. Thank you.
Blender is not the ideal rendering tool to fix this kind of issues because it doesn't handle transparency as well as others 3d programs but given that it's the only tool you have to work it's worth a shot. You can probably fix the major issues. Minor issues might need further work to get it done properly. If you are still having issues with your project you can open a creators help thread sharing your files and a picture of the problem for a more guided help.
