Hi all!
I'm doing some oldschool PFX stuff. I'm animating the end clip and use some pressure mappings to create a smooth growing effect, which works pretty well.

Now I need to find the tips of growing branches/twigs. I could use the flowers positions, but they are getting "born" to late (when the twigs are finished).

Is there  a way to get those tips in any way for the whole growing process? Basically I need the newly created vertices on each frame, right? I just need them to create some masks.

Thanks!


EDIT: Just using the new verts won't be enough, the mor I think about that. The verts keep moving after the twigs are completed.

Hard to say without diving into PFX. Will try to find some time for you, if you didn't solve it already of course.

No, I didn't solve it by now. I'm thinking about some hacky stuff, but most ideas would give me a pretty messy result?

If you can send me an example scene.
