I've watched a bunch of Geo flower tutorials and read a lot of articles, but I haven't been able to figure out how to better place and control leaves or petals at the tops of the flower stems.
I'm betting that this is a simple case of me not knowing what fields to use.
I start with a base geometry:
Then I create seeds / distribute points on faces:
Then create the stems:
Now Adding flowers is where everything collapses:
This image is one attempt. The leaves rotate correctly and they are at the top of each stem, but as you can see, they are all identical and I can't figure out how to randomize them. If I randomize this it makes them all exactly the same random amounts.To be clear, I want to randomize the X and Y of the flower petals so they aren't all exactly rotated and look the same. (I'm using the output of the Stem's
Trim Curve node to a
Resample Curve node, to bring the points over) (perhaps that is a mistake?)
So I tried a different way. The leaves here are rotated correctly, but they run down the length of the stem instead of around the top point of the stem. If I try an Endpoint I get only one leaf at the top.
I know it's some simple math or something but for the life of me I can't get it right. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
