Making a turbulence fall off along a strand

Got a Comment from Chris on fall offs for turbulence, Sorry for the late replay been hectic at work(and diablo :D)

But anyway, straight to it then.

Bring into your Ice Tree the TF_Frizz_Strands_by_Turbulence node, it looks like this:

Strand Turbulence ICE/SoftIMAGE

Now to add the fall off you will have to go inside the compound and add the following nodes:

Fall off along Strand

Basically what you are doing is multiplying the turbulence with the fcurve, where its value is zero there will be no turbulence, where the value is 1(1.5) there will be turbulence.

Rescale with a curve Fall off along a strand ICE/SOFTIMAGE

So before the fall off it looked like-----
