View Full Version : PaintFX: Smooth Twigs Growth?

06 June 2008, 10:53 AM
I'm trying to animate the growth of a palm tree from the presets coming with Maya. I wanted to control the way it grows by animating individually each attribute. It animates well except it doesn't give a smooth animation when animating the TwigLength for example.
Here is a sample of what I'm getting:
My brush has only a Twig enabled ( no branches).

Ahh need to increase the tube segments under Tubes > Creation cause it grows per segment.

Thanks, that's sorted it out. I was using around 200 segments then cranked it up to 2000
