ICE: Fast volume emission using signed distance fields. And bunnies.

Softimage ICE is fast, no doubt. But, there are more than a few occasions when even ICE grinds to a halt. Dealing with stupid numbers of particles is usually not so much of an issue (as long as you have the memory). But, when all those particles have to interact with geometry, more often than […]

Getting motion vectors from your SPH simulation to your mesh

Here are a couple of little Softimage ICE compounds that I’ve found to be very useful over the last couple of months, when dealing with meshes generated from particle simulations. In particular, I’ve been working with the great SPH solver from Thiago Costa and Grant Kot, which when used in conjunction with a mesher, such […]
