The fern generator is really annoying me lately, its too bulky and low res, my initial graph was just too complex and over engineered.

So I tried a new formula and so far it seems a lot faster (with no optimisation) and has better results. The graph is procedural and produces a higher res. Below you can see the results this is still WIP.

The mesh has a single fern which has been duplicated down the stem for testing.

Its not the photo realistic piece of the future but with a few tweaks it will get there.

I’m going to separate the graphs so that the stem/ leaves will have their own unique graph.

This will help keep it clean and with some exposed parameters offer quick tweaks on the fly, i hope.

If you have any crits please done hesitate to email me.
