ABSTRACT
The semi-implicit integration scheme is often used to simulate cloth animation because of its high stability and efficiency. However, it gives notable vibrations because of linear approximation in large rotations, which always occur in cloth simulations. Hence, most simulations are inaccurate and inefficient, with the number of iterations increasing enormously and vibrating significantly in adjacent time steps. In this article, the authors propose a novel physical model that is both stable and efficient when simulating cloth with large rotations. Furthermore, their approach introduces fewer artificial damping effects than in previously proposed semi-implicit methods.
