Guys, have a look at this image:
How would you try to make those vines? I know the first thing that comes to mind is IvyGenetaror. But after a closer look, the stem generated by IvyGenerator is not smooth. It progresses in a zigzag shape. Also, here many vine stems are entangled with each other.
How would you try to make such a thing? Advise me something please. I chiefly use XSI, but have a decent working knowledge of Max, Maya and Modo as well.
