I'm trying to use the Sapling add-on to create and animate a palm tree with a certain large palm leaf. Creating the base palm tree is pretty straightforward after using the downward curves for the main branches.
I thought I could use the branches as the larger leaf stems then have the individual leaves come off those branches/stems. The problem is getting these specific palm leaves right. I don't think I can use the Sapling add-on for the individual leaves because the leaves have to be offset from both sides of the branches (or leaf stems). So I'm trying to model the larger palm leaf and add it to the animated tree using the existing armature for the branches. But I don't know if I can add my larger leaves to the existing armature.
Any ideas would be hugely appreciated. Spent hours on this already.
