Bend is used to bend fibres either towards or away from the surface, the reference frame of this surface can be altered by specifying new Normal and Up Vector values as well as the bend direction to vary the result.

Inputs

Input Description
0 Data Flow Fibres

Bend

Parameter Description
Bend The amount of bend.
Bend Random Used to randomize the amount of bend on a per fibre basis.
Bend Direction A means of rotating the bend direction on a per fibre basis.
Bend Start The point along the fibre where it should start bending.
Bend End The point along the fibre where it should end bending.
Normal The attribute used to define the surface normal, this along with Up Vector is used to define the direction of the bend.
Up Vector The value for the up vector, by default this is the Y axis but this can be a varying attribute to randomize the bend direction.
