This introduction to trash simulation pipelines for Disney/Pixar's "Toy Story 3" focuses on interactions between bulldozers and trash piles. The simulation pipeline used Pixar's in-house rigid-body tool, Ned, to create a sim model and several custom simulation-rig forces, collision events, procedural motions, etc. A second pipeline generated interactive smoke and dust. Texture-driven particles were used to convert collision data to textures, and Atmos, Pixar's system for creating volumetric effects based on ray-marching in RenderMan provided rendering volume information.
