A thinking particle setup to colonize a space with those beautiful ivy like plants. I was inspired by Sergey Movchan Colonizing tool and I heavily utilized the new TP spline operator. I started with a simple vision setup based on distance and the angle threshold between the moving particle velocity vector and the vector that connects this particle with the surrounding, you can check it here:
The branches follows the same method of discovering the surrounding environment, and whenever the particle cant find any surroundings it will be terminated. The leaves where a simple animated bended planes. I used displacement for the branches to give it that rough look. Here is the technical demonstration of the tool:
There is no physical interaction between the leaves and the branches so you can see some intersection here and there and no wind or joints system.
