WDAS Technology Projects: Smoothed Aggregation Multigrid for Cloth Simulation

  • Published: 15 March 2016
  • Smoothed Aggregation Multigrid for Cloth Simulation: Existing multigrid methods for cloth simulation are based on geometric multigrid. While good results have been reported, geometric methods are problematic for unstructured grids, widely varying material properties, and varying anisotropies, and they often have difficulty handling constraints.

          For the people who don't animate, you have no freaking idea how hard this actually is to do.

                      wow that's... impresive. in the near futer all the animators would have to do is model and charakters move animation, that will be done by motion capture. i wonder how many time this will take to make a move this times

                        Motion capture is never going to be applicable for animation as stylized as Disney's.

                                        In 15-20 years or so, people are going to look back on this and say it's so dated.

I played around with it in blender but it's very confusing. What you guys are doing is far superior and very realistic. I cannot wait to see more animated films/shorts with simulated cloth! It's so very intriguing to me.
