For the weekly seminar of the STORM research group, Nadine Aburumman will give a talk on HairControl: A Tracking Solution for Directable Hair Simulation.
In this research work, the problem that we are trying to solve is a compromise that animators have to make when making the hair on characters do what the scene requires. While the hair will ultimately be rendered in glorious high-definition and with detailed physics, it’s too computationally expensive to do that while composing the scene. The artists typically resort to lower-resolution simulations, where iterations are faster and manual edits possible. But unfortunately, the parameter values determined in this way can only serve as an initial guess for the full-resolution simulation, which often behaves very differently from its coarse counterpart when the same parameters are used.
This seminar will take place the 12/10 at 12:30pm in the Salle des Thèses at IRIT.
