Hair children not rendered (2.78c)

Hi guys,
I’m using some particle system hair, but I can’t seem to get the number of children per parent making any difference in the F12 render. It looks like if children/parent for render would be set to zero, which it isn’t…
The children setting for preview works fine. Does anyone have any idea about what I could have missed?

I’m using 2.78c and render in cycles if that helps. If I remember correctly this children setting worked in 2.78a.

It’s the scene named smHelmet if you want to check the blend file.

You have “Simplify” enabled in the Scene tab:
There you have set the multiplier for the amount of Child particles in the final render to 0.

Ah there it was!
Thank you so much! :slight_smile:
