Interpolations of Smoke and Liquid Simulations

Nils Thuerey We present a novel method to interpolate smoke and liquid simulations in order to perform data-driven fluid simulations. Our approach calculates a dense space-time deformation using grid-based signed-distance functions of the inputs. A key advantage of this implicit Eulerian representation is that it allows us to use powerful techniques from the optical flow […]

Interactive Modeling and Authoring of Climbing Plants

Torsten Hädrich, Bedrich Benes, Oliver Deussen, Sören Pirk We present a novel system for the interactive modeling of developmental climbing plants with an emphasis on efficient control and plausible physics response. A plant is represented by a set of connected anisotropic particles that respond to the surrounding environment and to their inner state. Each particle […]
