    For broadleafs with complex edge conditions you can either Use an opacity map or use a an instanced mesh for the leaf path mesh. Probably the best way to get familiar with the leaf builder mesh would be the manual. It does a really good job of explaining what each of the parameters do and it is a quick read. When I model specific leaves I usually end up using an opacity map. I make a square plane with enough segments to give me a little geometric variation then the fine detail of the shape is achieved with the opacity map. For simpler leaves I just use the leaf mesh builder on its own. Hope it helps Paul

    Hi Noahman, I am not really sure. It looks like there is something going on with the material. If you are using a two sided material effect It has to know which direction is up and which is down in order to work properly. In your plant modifiers do you have vector directional modifiers on all paths ? I usually put a vector directional modifier on every path to specify which direction will be treated as up (positive) and down (negative). If you don't you will sometimes get strange results on your later paths (leaves). These black spots might be a result of normals facing the wrong direction on the leaves. This is just a guess. Maybe you could try a flat material and see if you still get strange results ? Is your leaf material a two sided material ? I
