    Default Ztree Plugin

    I added some more Buttons,

    PasteAround and Pasteoriented will paste ZS, scale and orient them in relation with the selected zsphere. They are a little different. Pastearound will orient the Y axis of your copied ZS and rotate it around the selected ZS, while PasteOriented will align the Y axis of your copied ZS with the direction of your selected ZS.MultiPaste is like pasteoriented but paste copies all over ... like growbranches you can define the starting point use the BranchesStartHere button.
    ResetSpin will reset the twist of all ZS, this is only noticeable when you generate the adaptivemesh.
    DefaultSetting surprisingly enough will reset all the sliders to default.
    examples.zip

    To install just UnZip on your Zplug subfolder.

    Oh , I also added a button to reset the twist of all zs ... This is sometimes necessary because the adaptive mesh get twisted... Not just modeling a tree but any other thing.

    Cool, a bit like a weeping willow. Did you save the fiber settings to a file?

    Default Trees, and videos

    10 minutes to model, 40 minutes to render the turntable with some bprfilters and a simple light... Never again! lol
    I will post a better one and sample zs models... when I have some time.
    In the 2nd video you see how you can get a pretty nice tree model in under a minute. the Timelapse was actually slowed down

    My first tests with best results on adding brittle branches with fibers is to play with modulate by masking (1-5) and turn modulate by area to 0. Gravity with small values (-0.xxx) Gravity Directions Variations, and playind with the Revolve Rate.

    Thank you for the video┬┤s dargelos.

    I hope next week I can capture a video too.

    Great tool.
