Computer Animation: Algorithms and Techniques

Computer Animation: Algorithms and Techniques

Rick Parent


Driven through call for from the leisure for greater and extra real looking animation, know-how keeps to conform and enhance. The algorithms and strategies at the back of this know-how are the basis of this entire publication, that's written to teach you the basics of animation programming.

In this 3rd version, the most up-tp-date thoughts are coated in addition to the idea and high-level computation that experience earned the publication a name because the top technically-oriented animation source. Key themes comparable to fluids, hair, and crowd animation were increased, and huge new insurance of garments and fabric has been further. New fabric on simulation presents a extra diversified examine this crucial quarter and extra instance animations and bankruptcy tasks and workouts are integrated. also, spline insurance has been elevated and new video compression and codecs (e.g., iTunes) are covered.

  • Includes better half web site with modern animation examples drawn from examine and leisure, pattern animations, and instance code
  • Describes the main mathematical and algorithmic foundations of animation that offer you with a deep figuring out and keep watch over of technique
  • Expanded and new insurance of key themes together with: fluids and clouds, fabric and garments, hair, and crowd animation
  • Explains the algorithms used for direction following, hierarchical kinematic modelling, inflexible physique dynamics, flocking behaviour, particle platforms, collision detection, and more
