Simulating Cloth for 3D Games

At the Game Developers Conference in March 2000, I presented my implementation of two techniques for simulating cloth. I was pointed to another, more recent, technique by someone who attended the class. In this paper I'll recap what I presented about at the conference and include information about the newer technique. Hopefully you'll be able to take the ideas I present here and add some level of support for cloth simulation into your title.

    The Challenge of Animating the Artist's Dream

    Introduction: Disguising seams in NURBS models

    Today is a great day to be a 3D animator! It wasn't long ago that animators were stuck with creating stiff-jointed, scarred-looking automatons. These characters had all the beauty and grace of Frankenstein. Rendering engines couldn't handle deformations, or high-level geometry, and polygons ruled the gaming world. The computing power for creating fluid movement and seamless-looking joints simply wasn't there.

  • Multi-Core Simulation of Soft-Body Characters using Cloth

    Soft-body physics is an increasingly popular feature in videogames. This article shows how, with the additional processing power of a multi-core CPU, entire soft-body characters can be created using cloth simulation techniques.
