Dynamic Texture: Physically Based 2D Animation
Coupling physically based techniques and image morphing techniques has the potential to yield new directions in computer animation. This sketch demonstrated examples of this coupling approach: successful syntheses of the stochastic motion of plants under the influence of wind, in which 2D textures are realistically animated based on dynamic simulation.
