09 September 2007, 08:06 AM

I work on maya, and I've to animate this tree.

but I don't know how. if you could help me...

I've try with dynamic, turbulance filelds, but the leaves plan move on X,Y and Z axis, and I juste want they rotate.

I've try to anime them with rotation, but it don't look real.

and finely, I've try to rotate them randomly with the edit mesh/transform component tool, but I've not found how I can annimate this tool.

If you have any idea...

thank's a lot for your time.

ive been trying to animate something like you but with bambu trees...the main problem is polycount. Ncloth with a constraint at the root of the tree works fine for animation with wind and everything but the polycount ufffff
