I followed Yorik’s ngPlant tutorial and created the leaves in Inkscape and GIMP then cropped the leaves to their exact dimensions before saving.
I figured out why the leaves were not attached to the branches, it was because I made the ngPlant Wings rectangles too wide (see pic).
Now, I see that when leaf specularity is ON you can see the Wings rectangle and the leaf shadow is in the shape of the rectangle. Setting leaf specularity at 0.0 removes the Wings rectangle from around the leaf, but you can still see the rectangular Wings shadow (see pics).
Is it possible to turn on specularity and not see the Wings rectangle around the leaf?
Is it possible to have leaf shadows and not Wings rectangle shadows?
