  • Is it possible to make more then two splits on a single generator?

    Is it possible to make more then two splits on a single generator.
    For example have three or four splits on one trunk or branch.

    Thank you in advance.
    Greetings, Arno

    Hey arno.bax : To answer this, I'll be linking you to our docs on splits: http://docs8.speedtree.com/modeler/doku.php?id=splits

    In order to enable more than 2 splits in a trunk, you'll need to adjust the trunk generator's parameters in the skin tab (Skin > Splits > Chance).

    Add your branch generator and, under the gen tab, set "Extend Parent" to "any". You can adjust the extended branches using the Spread settings under the trunk generator's skin tab; branch generator settings can then be modified to add to the split.

    When you split a branch, the texture wrapping around it must also split cleanly: this means your U tiling must be divisible by two so it can accommodate being halved. (So, if you see a UV error after doing the above, be sure the absolute U of your generators are divisible by 2!)

    We hope this helps!

      Is there a cap on how many splits you can get this way?

        Strida The number of branches you could have splitting off with this method would be contingent on your generator settings (first & last, radius, count, frequency, & spread for starters!)

        Experimenting to get the look you're trying to achieve is the best way to learn! Best of luck on your work!
