I have my first small project for scientific paper, but I am very new to Maya (at the level of 3D Buzz Maya Fundamentals, "Abduction" project) and badly need your help!
I have to illustrate the neuron with the new outgrowing process. This process divide into two, which continue to grow and each of them divide again into two processes (bifurcation).
Now, I can imagine how I can make a single process to move (IK) and grow (keyframe move and scale transformations), but I don't really know what should I do to divide the process into two new ones.
I hope I could describe what I mean. If not, I will be able to attach some sketches later on.
Please, please, help!
