  • Wind and Fronds: Leafs separate from branches


    I'm creating small plants, the kind that don't have a main trunk but a branch per each big leaf, so I'm using fronds to achieve this.

    The problem I'm having is with the wind, because the leaft separates from the branch because the branch stands still while the leaf moves back and forth.

    What I've been trying to do is to limit the movement of the leaf in Settings > Scalars > Distance.
    But this is not the point, the point is that the branchs are stading still while they should be moving with the leafs.

    I'm attaching a screenshot of the problem and also the Wind Wizard window so the settings are visible.

    Nevermind, I just figured it out.

    I had the Fronds as "Leaf Style Fronds", under Frond > Geometry Types.

    After unchecking this, the fronds worked fine with the wind.
