I've just got your software, and it looks amazing. I am very anxious to learn it. While evaluating it from your demo version, I've test-rendered wind animation of the freebie palm tree you provide for download. I've noticed that the trunks and leaf stems have very convincing movements, but the leaves are not bending and flopping in the wind as they would in reality. They do sway and twist, but are pretty stiff. In reality palm leaves are very flexible and they change their shape the most as they sway in the wind. (I know I live in Florida!) Is this just my ignorance of the software, or this is what to be expected? If they are stiff, can wind leaf distortion be added? (Man, this would blow away any competition! I use Vue Xtreme and their ready made trees are pathetic!) Also, on another topic -- the coconut palm tree in the Palms collection have coconuts that were already cleaned up from the outer layers... (It is kind of funny to see them hanging on the tree <g> I understand you guys live in Russia where those treed don't grow -- I can send you photos or videos or real trees with coconuts if you have the desire to correct it).
