I need to place several plants in an image. The plants, actually herbal plants, do have a lot of twigs and leaves. I'd love to be able to use something like splines or motion paths to position the stems and everything. If there wouldn't be any twigs, I would morph the plant along a bone chain. But I guess thats not working, because of the twigs which are by themselves parented to the stem, but also the start of a new bone chain or spline. Is there a way to use something else apart from the regular bone chains?

There are quite alot of plants and I'm afraid the art director wants a lot of changes, too.

Cheers and thanks in advance
Thomas
