A twig is a 3D model that represents the latest flush of growth – a small branch with leaves. Twigs are instanced at branch ends to add incredible realism to your trees. You can use any polygonal object as a twig, and this makes the twig system very flexible. The twig models sold on this site capture a lot of detail, but you can just as well use you own low polygon geometry or even single leaves.

Pick a twig
To add to twigs to your tree, simply pick one from the twigs menu in the Twig panel. You can use any 3D object from your scene, a collection of objects, or pick a twig from your library. The twigs menu lists all twigs it can find in your library folder.

Library
After installing The Grove, it’s time to create a folder to keep all twigs together. Let’s call this folder TwigsLibrary – you can place it anywhere you like, and then point to this folder in The Grove’s user preferences. When you purchase a twig, simply unzip it to the library folder.

As an example, let’s presume you purchase an ash twig and an elm twig. After a correct installation, your twigs folder will have two sub folders called AshTwig and FieldElmTwig. Each of these will contain the .blend files for the twigs and each of them will have a separate textures folder. So each twig has it’s own folder with its own textures, keep it that way. The Grove will automatically find the two twigs and you can add them to your trees from the twigs menu.

Scale
Twigs and presets are two completely separate things – you can use any twig on any preset. This is an important concept, and it takes very little effort to adjust the preset to a different twig. Of course it would look silly to use a walnut twig on a pine preset, but with some common sense you can use a single twig on more than one preset.

The first thing to do when picking a twig for your tree is to adjust the preset to match the size of the twig. For instance the Paper Birch twig comes in several variations, one covering a bigger branch than the other. So after picking a twig, adjust Simulate > Scale to make it look right. You may also have to tweak Twig > Density.
