Recommended Posts

Hi guys, im really glad with GrowFX!!

Well, im trying to animate petals and im using a the Shape modifier to bend and give them some randomization as well.

You could definitely animate a flower opening. Something you might try to make things a little easier on yourself would be to introduce a dummy path. It would just bee an invisible path on the end of the parent of the petal paths. You would tie the animated flower modifiers to its length. This way the plant could grow and the flowers would animate after the plant was done growing. Fruit growth can also be made in a similar way.

 

I have a pretty in depth tutorial on plant growth here( below ). It is a little boring but it should take you through everything you need.
