The technical papers and accompanying videos are always a highlight of the SIGGRAPH. This year seems to bring some neat new tricks, as shown in this preview-video. At the end there’s a short clip of a snow-simulation that will blow your mind if you care about these things. My othere favourites are a brilliant new simulation approach for paper and an even better approach for liquid simulation that supports incredibly detailed meshes. I can’t wait for the full videos and papers! And once theses technologies find their way into mass-market VFX tools we’re all in for a good time.
