The way fabric moves has always been a pain to recapture virtually. Creating realistic folds and drapes in anything from skirts to sails has always been computationally expensive, and impossible to produce in realtime. Now, thanks to Maha Mahadevan, and their team at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, that may soon change. They have started developing mathemathical equations that exactly mimic how cloth moves, under any given situation. These equations will eventually allow physics simuilations to contain realistically billowing sails, and clothes that ripple as the wearer moves. Truly adding a new degree of immersion.
