I need help! I am making a blender project where a tree grows. The trunk and branches are working seamlessly (thanks to the bevel option), but I cannot find a way to make the leaves look like they are growing. So far, I have tried adding a transparency BSDF to make the leaves fade in, but I end up with weird black splotches while the leaves are supposed to be invisible:
The green section is the part that controls the look of the leaves, the blue part is the part that controls the transparency, and the pink part is the part I have keyframed.
If anybody can help me fix these splotches, or preferably even show me a better way of making the leaves appear, I will be very grateful!!!
Thanks in advance,
