Direction of leaves

Recommended Posts

Hi Eduard:


May I know how can i control the direction of the leaves at the tips of the branches so that they are all spreading outwards and all

facing upwards. Please see attached images for reference and the working file.

In additional , can we:

1) bend the leave mesh without using vector direction

2) have a few leaves shapes in a tree.

3) have different leaves angle across so that we can have some of the leaves bending upwards, downwards and laying flat.


Would appreciate that you can help me with my queries.

Hi avihcc,


I've fixed your tree a bit, see the attached file: Tree_1A02.max


1) You can use Radial direction.

2) You can use the Instanced Geometry, and add a few leaves as you like. Here's an example: DifferentLeaves_1.max

3) This can be achieved by adding an Affect to the Radial angle for example, and adjust the Chaos% as you like. See this also in DifferentLeaves_1.max.
