In today’s video, we check out plant growth on a rig that was designed for 3D modeling in Blender 2.93! This setup uses nodes and modifiers to simulate plants growing along surfaces of various shapes with ease – all without having you worry about animating complicated roots or leaves anymore..
Note this will only work on a version of Blender that supports geometry nodes, a feature that’s still under development.
