An Evolving System for Simulating Clothes on Virtual Actors
September 1996 (vol. 16 no. 5)
pp. 42-51
In this paper, we first describe the State-of-the-Art in cloth modeling and animation, followed by a survey of the evolution of our work on the cloth generation and animation process toward evolving requirements. We then describe a more general system able to create autonomous clothes which may be worn by any synthetic human. We explain the method for creating both the clothes and the virtual humans.
