View Full Version : L-System.

03 March 2003, 09:58 PM
Hello, All

I have a L-System setup in my houdini sceen. And I'm unable to get the "tree" shape meaning I just have lines for the tree, but not actual tree geometry shape.

I'm places a tube in the third channel and re-vamped the rules to intergrate it, but it was places along the tree like it was leaves, regardless of how I tweaked it.

Can anyone help?

Not quite sure if I understood you there. If you want better geometry than lines for your trunks, then I'd append a PolyWire.

Did you play with the parameters?
Try playing with the parameter or with the mouse pointer on the viewer pane hit tab write transform and scale it.

check the Geometry page and change from 'wire' to 'tube'
you may also want to try loading some of the presets to see how they work...
the tutorial guide also has some very good tutorials on l-systems
