Question Creating a bush with hairs: unwanted offset of branches during animation

Im trying to model a bush which moves in the wind and Im trying to accomplish this using C4D hair objects and a turbulence simulation. The animation turns out nicely, however the branches tend to loose contact to their "parent" branches when there is a heavy gust.

However, when I click on the elements of the hair objects of the bush in the outline view one-by-one, the branches and leaves move to their correct positions:

Im experiencing the same problem when I render the animation.

I'm not sure if this going to help you or not but your problem seems similar to something that came up in a tutorial by "thommeo" entitled "Christmas tree tutorial for Cinema 4D" on Vimeo.

Check out his part one:

You'll see he had a problem with the splines of the branches separating from the main branch I believe 3/4 of the way into the video and shows how to correct it. It might... might offer you a solution.

I'm sorry though I watched it - I can't remember what he did off the cuff.

Hope it helps, if not, the guys here at CGS really know their stuff and I'm sure will chime in.
