- | Efficient modeling of trees with the SpeedTree Modeler requires an understanding of curves and how to use them effectively. You can generally think of curves as a "volume control" on your tree properties. The static value of the property, either the default or one you've entered yourself, can be thought of as the maximum volume. The vertical position of the point on the curve then represents the percentage of that maximum, and the horizontal position of the point on the curve determines where that value of the property will be applied. For more information about standard curve shapes and how to adjust curves, please see the [[toolcurve_editor|Curve Editor page]]. | + | Efficient modeling of trees with the SpeedTree Modeler requires an understanding of curves and how to use them effectively.
