Providing interactive control is a hot topic in crowd-navigation research. Here, the authors propose a simple but effective way for authoring a crowd scene. With their governing tool, users can easily drive the flow of crowds by sketching velocities on anchor points in the scene. This approach is fast enough to allow on-the-fly modification of vector fields.
