Leaves - Wind animation
Posted 10 January 2012 - 11:20 PM
I've just made my first tree and want to animate it for a close shot, but I'm having some troubles with the animation of the leaves. Some of them flip directly from 0 to 180º. I've already tried animating it using both "vector direction" and "wind animation" direction modifiers.
Have already happened something similar to some of you?
I cannot realize what i'm doing wrong.
Thanks in advance

For the branches B_1 -> VecOrient_dir_03 I set "Y orientation", accordingly for B_2 -> PathDistr_01 -> Distributor in points -> Angle axis = 90, and added VecOrient_dir the same as for B_1. This lined the leaves on the tips B_1 and B_2.
I've also improved your tree, and set up an animation by using Wind animation modifier, instead Vector_dir.
I sent you the modified tree...

I have a deadline end of the week, little pushed for time.

Yes, you need to add a wind modifier for each path that you want to be animated. For example, for conifer needles is not necessary to add a wind modifier...
When adding the wind modifier, must you add this to each path individually? for example to get the brances and leaves moving, you would add a wind modifier on each path? Would it be possible to update your wind tutorial or post a sample tree with wind? I have a deadline end of the week, little pushed for time.
Here shows in detail how to make a wind animation for a tree: http://exlevel.com/t...Wind_Animation/
