Very nice! How long does it take you to write this kind of cool stuff?

Very cool stuff! I liked the dynamic bone chain on the character, that looked hilarious! : )

That's really impressive. Hopefully someday you'll have time to share how they're done

The tools are neat. I also particularly like yr spongebob viewcube

Lol, thx to Richard Maegaki for the texture (alias 'Riggerman')

Hey Hans,

This stuff is so awesome!

It's funny to see that lately I've been trying to tackle the "Sliding along surface" paper from Disney, but I can't seem to figure it out at all! I really wonder if you're willing to share a more 'pseudo-code' like example of the algorithm!

And about the collision deformer I would love to know how you set up that bulging! Like how you calculate the offset to where it should bulge. Is it based on distance to the closest point that is being deformed? Also it doesn't seem like you're only bulging along the Vertex normal in that 'head preview', or is that the 'back weighting' also pushing it to the sides?

By the way, since you've already implemented the Laplacian you're not that far from the Delta Mush implementation. It gives some pretty nice result, here's a video from R&H's Voodoo (2nd video):
And here's an implementation in Fabric Splice / Maya:

Anyway, great job!

Hi Roy,

I confess I dońt really have the time to work on the 'delta mush´ for the moment, which is for me a special case of the Eigen deformation paper written by Tamal Dey : Paper
Maybe one day

You are entirely right about the collision deformer, I firstly move´back´vertices,
Then move along normals, results are really better than simply moving along normals.
ClosestPoints or raytrace are needed for that.

About sliding technique, the process is really simpler than it appears in the paper,
First start from a point or a vertex on the mesh, choose a direction vector, choose a distanceMax, from now the algorithm is mainly composed of plane-segment intersections with edges, you continue the process until your dMax ! Which is very fast in c++

Hoping this can help man
