I do use his camera macros (v1.0), in my scenes.  The uploaded one is not using
any focal blur, (yet).  I looked through the code and I don't see anything
related to ISO.  I would imagine it could be part of his stochastic focus code,
introducing noise based on ISO and lighting conditions on the focal plane, but I
didn't recognize anything like that.

Yes, you are correct about the cords.  A lot of trial and error getting the
splines correct to lay them out.  I really need to set up some test code so I
can better predict what they are going to look like.  These are self-created
sweep macros using a cross section of the cord that gets rotated and banked
along the spline.

This version of the plant actually has two vines!  That's about as much as I can
be trusted to care for a live plant.
