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.
