The picture above shows the structure of interconnections between main elements of GrowFX.
The process of building a GrowFX object consists of three stages: creation of paths - Creating Paths, creation of meshes - Creating Meshes, and modifying path directions - After Mesh Modifying.
Main algorithms work in the following sequence:
There is also a special mechanism called Affects. Affects receives some parameters, modifies them and transfers modified parameters to other algorithms to use them as source parameters.- Transfer of parameter values to Affects. For example, it can be the length of a created path, start point position on the other path, or tilt angle of a start vector.
