One thing i tried is the ivy gen addon and animating the start & end mapping but that doesnt “grow” the branches naturally because the branches are all seperated (curves can’t have branches i guess).
This is how the animation looks right now. As you can see the little branches “grow” at the same time as the “root branches”. If that makes sense to you.
I also tried a skin modifier on some extruded vertices plus the build modifier but that doesn’t work.
