The Inner Game of Concurrency Programming: Optimizing for Intel's Dual Cores

While there are a variety of methods used to simulate fluid motion, most of them involve algorithms that are computationally intensive and run sequentially over a number of frames to produce an animated result. For this reason the performance of a given algorithm, in addition to its visual characteristics, is a critical factor in how useful the algorithm may be as an artistic tool.

  • An Overview of How to Accurately Model Procedurally Spreading Fire

    The Smoke demo, which highlights the scalability of a multi-threaded game engine architecture, includes a novel approach for creating procedural fire. In this article we describe the mechanism used to create realistic fire and an additional water effect.
