"levels" on distributors

Recommended Posts

Hello;

 

Is there a way to determine "when" a second level starts on a branch?

 

Right now I have to make branches longer for 2nd level to start branching, but i need it to happen sooner then it does at the moment.

 

For example: i need 2nd level branching after 15cms of branch, now it's doing it on 50+ cm branch

 

regards

hey

 

I got that far actualy, thanks, i was worried i chose the wrong one because i seem to be unable to understand that pop up box

 

in that box:

 

When i select the start position, It does what you said, the branches start "2nd-levelling" sooner

 

However, to further control this feature with the parameters supplied, I'm getting lost...

 

Im entering random values between 0 and 10 in all the boxes to see if anything changes, but the only thing that changes something is the "Random Time" box when going from 0 to 1.

 

other then that i can enter values from 0 to 100000+ they don't seem to be doing anything in the viewport (i checked if manual update is off)

If you want to affect on any parameter like "Start position", you must specify a value for this parameter is not equal to zero, otherwise there will be no effect.

 

I'm a little improved your tree, take a look here:

I understand now.

 

So but as I'm trying to adjust the starting point of the second level of branches the first level will change starting position as well. So if I want only the second level of branches to change position I basicly need to make a new path :)

 

I was trying to not do this since the demo only has 5 paths to create ;)

 

cheers

As I've shown in my first example, I've affected on the "Start position", and I configured the graph so that the first level of branches obtained a zero value.

See my screenshot:

yeah i get the same thing when i use only 2 paths, i'm trying it on a 3rd one, there's something i'm missing... i'll look more into it tomorrow..

What behavior you want to get for the 3rd level?
For example: The 1st level starts from 0, the 2nd level starts from 15cm, the 3rd level also starts from 15cm. In this case, you just specify a Levels value = 3.
 
 
Thanks!

I'm going to dig into the 2 files and the modified tree you sent back earlier first. I can probably understand what I'm doing wrong from those files. If I still don't understand after that I'll get back to you.

 

What I meant earlier was that when I do exacly what I see you do, I get the same results, but when doing it on a 3rd rank branch it doesn't work and i'm sure there's a reason, so i need to dig some more into the tree you modified cause it worked on that one..

 

so trunk (level 1) > branch (level 1) > branch (level 1 + level 2)
