Creating an unfolding leaf


Recommended Posts


I'm trying to create and animate a leaf that's unfolding itself. Unfortunately I've had no luck yet, as I always get stuck with some intersecting polygons, because the leaf is so thin. My current approach involves a custom lattice deform as the built-in bend deformer doesn't quite do it for me and also the bend deformer from houdini exchange didn't exactly do what I was after.

Maybe someone can help me to solve the problem or point me to a better (and working) approach to do this animation.
