Master Ivy Creation in Blender

From quick sketches to meticulous details,
all backed by our rich library of presets and assets.


3 Ivy Generators

For versatile needs, the addon includes three generators: Precision - letting you design ivy branch by branch; Accurate - generating ivy tailored to the surface with a complex and realistic branch network; and Fast - for creating expansive ivy areas with top-notch performance.


Embrace Speed !

FAST Generator : Perfect for background scenes or covering large areas, this generator focuses on performance and can create a vast amount of ivy.



Aim for Accuracy !

ACCURATE Generator : The ivy spreads and adapts to the surface, automatically generating a realistic network of branches.


Or be Precise !

PRECISION Generator : Draw branch by branch


Explore them all !

Quickly switch between species in 1 click !

How it works ?

Select a preset > select a target > DRAW !
It's fully integrated into the asset browser, you can also use your own assets.
Each preset has its own settings to generate the species in the most accurate way.



Complete library !

Our library contains over 300 assets and 70 preset species.

Each preset has its own settings, which allows the generator to be as accurate as possible.



Optimized for EEVEE & Cycles

  • Built with quad topology for seamless subdivision.
  • Minimal alpha for efficient rendering,
  • True-to-life species representation,
  • Fully compatible with both EEVEE & Cycles,

Assets's materials are also compatible with BagaPie "Node To Panel". 

Breathe Life into Your Ivy !

Seamless loopable animations and intuitive wind control at your fingertips. Our generator delivers dynamic ivy right out of the box.

Tip: For optimal results with custom assets, ensure their transforms point to +Y. If not, we've got you covered with a built-in option.



Full Control

  • Versatile Generation: A few tweaks unleash a vast range of ivy and vine designs.
  • Dynamic Foliage: Intuitive controls for both leaves and flowers.
  • Parametric Power: Built on Geometry Nodes for non-destructive modeling prowess.
  • Effectors : Delete leaves or branches by proxymity with other objects.
  • Use any assets: Integrate assets from the Asset Browser or your scene seamlessly.
  • Convert to Mesh : Ready to finalize ? Convert your intricate design to mesh with ease.



Ivy Optimization

  • Proxy System: Manage ivy efficiently with our proxy feature.
  • Bounding Boxes: Automatically generated for leaves and flowers.
  • Accurate Mode : Set different resolution between viewport and render.

Proxy in Accurate Mode



Easily Customizable Material

Easily modify materials to adjust for seasons or randomize brightness, hue, saturation, and more. By default, branches utilize our user-friendly procedural bark material. UVs are procedurally generated to facilitate the use of your own materials.



How it works ?

Add a new ivy :
  1. First install the addon such as any blender addon and setup the assets browser (via de addon preferences or addon panel).
  2. Then you must select an asset/preset. It can be from the Asset Browser or directly in your 3d view. The generator will automatically import and setup everything.
    Asset Browser : be sure to be in the "BagaIvy library", not in "All".
  3. Select the object(s) on which your ivy will grow.
    Only one objects if you select assets in the viewport (Source object = View 3D).
  4. Set a "Start Point" with the 3d cursor. This is the point at which the ivy will start to grow.
  5. Click on Add ivy and draw !


Good to know : 
  • BagaIvy V1 supports Blender 3.3+, while V2 is tailored for Blender 3.5 and upcoming versions. Future Blender versions will be supported upon their release.
  • Of course all futures updates are included.
  • This ivy is generated using geometry nodes. This means that you can modify it as much as you want once it is created.
  • Flowers and leaves are handled differently, with distinct and shared settings depending on the ivy mode. Also assets with "flower" in their name are automatically placed in the Flowers collection, but you're free to move them later.
  • Use presets by picking them in the asset browser and selecting a surface (Target). Each preset offers tailored parameters for specific species.
  • The addon panel simplifies the management of ivy collections. Manual collection editing isn't recommended.
  • Info icons (ⓘ) within the addon guide to tooltips and demo videos.
  • For Accurate mode, you can create as many Start Points as you need.
  • You can't simulate the growth of the ivy, only leaf movement is animatable.

Addon by Antoine Bagattini and Laura Mercadal























The most complete ivy generator for Blender.

Enjoy full control over your generation,multiple presets and our asset library.

All our assets are compatibles with EEVEE and Cycles.

Our materials are optimised to limit the use of memory while offering quality materials. 
All our assets are made from quad for clean subdivision and transparent surfaces are kept to a minimum to reduce rendering times.
Transparency can be disabled in the material editor.
Assets's materials are also compatible with BagaPie V8 "Node To Panel".


Animation

Need a loopable animation or simple wind control ?
By default our generator create animated ivy.

  • Customizable Generation : With few settings you can generate a large variety of ivy/vines.
  • Leaves and Flowers : Easily control the behaviour of the foliage
  • Based on Geometry Nodes (Parametric / Non destructive modeling)

  • Use any assets from the Asset Browser or your scene.
  • Convert to Mesh : You can convert your generation to mesh.


Optimization

  • Proxy system for the whole ivy
  • Generate bounds box for leaves and flowers
  • Set different resolution between viewport and render


How it works ?

Add a new ivy :

  1. First install the addon such as any blender addon and setup the assets browser.
  2. Then you must select an asset. It can be from the viewport or directly in your 3d view.
    The generator will automatically import and setup everything.

What's the diffrence between this generator and the one from BagaPie ?

This generator create animated ivy, it can be controlled with precision whether it is the way it grows or the zones of growth.
It generates a visually accurate trunk, it has a large library of assets, it has pressets (the parameters of the ivy are adjusted in relation to the preset), it has a proxy system, effector, ... 

BagaPie's ivy is meant to look good from a distance, and cover large areas, that's all.
It is very aproximate, has only one leaf asset, does not generate a trunk, has limited controls, no animation, no presets, no effector, no proxy, ...

Good to know : 

  • This addon is for Blender 3.3 ONLY. Future versions of blender will of course be supported once released.
  • Of course all futures updates are included.
  • This ivy is generated using geometry nodes. This means that you can modify it as much as you want once it is created.
  • Flowers are treated differently from leaves, depending in part on the distribution of the leaves.
    Also note that if your asset has "flower" in its name, it will automatically be placed in the flower collection. You can of course move it afterwards.
  • Ivy consists of two parts : The "Trunk" which is the main body of the ivy, it runs from the nearest "Start Point" to the furthest point.
    And the "Branches" spreads from the trunk.
  • To use our presets, you simply select them in the asset browser and select a surface (called Target).
    Each preset has custom parameters to adapt the generation to each species.
  • You can easily manage the content of all ivy collections via the addon panel.
    Please use it, manual editing of collections is not recommended.
  • Tooltips and links to demo videos are present in the addon. They are indicated by the info icon : ⓘ
  • You can create as many Start Points as you need, and move them around.
  • You can't animate the growth of the ivy, only the movement of the leaves.


Easily Customizable Material

Materials are easily editable in order to change the season and randomize the brightness, hue, saturation, ...

By default, branches uses our easy-to-use procedural shader.
If necessary you can use your own material. 

Pro tips :

When you draw your ivy, your curves must be very close or intersect for the ivy to spread.
But you can create fine extensions by drawing close to the ivy without crossing the existing curves.
