Apologies if I’ve posted this to the wrong part of the forum. ‘Basics & Interface’ just seemed to me to be the most appropriate section.
I’ve created (using the Sapling add-on) a sycamore tree. …My very first attempts using the sapling add-on. Please see the attached image.
The trunk, branches and leaves are all now mesh Objects, following conversion from curve.
Regarding my attempts to move them :
I now wish to move the trunk, branches and leaves (all together) in 3D space, to place them in my scene. I seem to be able to move the trunk and branches, but the leaves don’t stay with them. (The leaves either don’t move at all, or - if they do initially move - they jump back to their original position after a few seconds). I seem to remember something about having to ‘clear parent’ on the leaves ? So I tried that (selected the leaves > Object > Parent > Clear parent), but it doesn’t seem to work. Could anyone advise me on this, please ?
Regarding attempts to scale the trunk, branches and leaves all together :
In the same way that the leaves don’t seem to want to move (above), they also don’t seem to scale. Is it achieveable, after I’ve reached this late stage in the development of the tree.
I don’t know whether or not this is directly relevent to the above problems, but for your information : I used a cloth simulation (over just 26 frames) to create some drooping in the leaves.
Can anyone help me move / scale my tree, branches and leaves all as one ?
