This system represents furry surfaces as nonuniform layers of texture slices, automatically adjusting the layers to achieve efficient, high-quality rendering. It employs layered shadow maps to simulate self-shadowing. Interactive tools let users intuitively create and edit furry objects and instantly view the rendered objects.
