Description:Growth" is a 305k MPEG animation with 61 frames and dimensions of 160 x 120. "Growth" is the first of the "Vine Cathedral"-based animations I did. It allows you to watch the L-system generator software at work, as it starts from a stump and grows the Cathedral. This animation ranges from 0 to 60 iterations of the generating rules; the final stages get pretty tangled. ("Vine Cathedral" uses 40 iterations.) Early stages look somewhat like trees or bushes, the later stages look more like immature or overgrown versions of the Cathedral, and the final stages are so dense that they resemble woven fibers. (Some sections of the picture might actually make useful texture maps for other pictures. I might try this sometime.)
