I'm working on a project where fiddleheads are growing and unfurling into ferns. The original design is vector, but I can't figure out a good way to animate the curling. I've tried puppet pins and mask lines but they are both very jagged. I've even tried just drawing a line and moving the points, but it still seems too jagged.
I feel like I'm missing something really simple. Any thoughts appreciated.
I think I figured it out...I created a bone and controller system for the main stem to grow, then parented the leaves to each bone as it goes up. Looks okay so far! I'll post again if I have any trouble.
Thanks for the input.
