Recently I have written an introductory tutorial on how to program your own soft body simulations in real-time environments. Here are some of the things that you will be able to create by the end of the tutorial:


Cloth Simulation


Slinky Simulation


Chain Simulation

This article won three prizes:

  • Best Physics Knowledge Base Entry
    Intel Havok Physics Contest (March 2009)
  • Community Voting Prize
    Intel Havok Physics Contest (January 2009)
  • First Prize

Please consider tipping me for my open source efforts

NOTE: It assumes that you are an absolute beginner in physics simulation programming, but it does assume that you know about object-oriented programming. The tutorial uses XNA 3.0, which is the framework used for creating games on the PC, Xbox 360 and the Zune (Microsoft’s MP3 player). The language used is C#.

Hope you like the article!

I am a Technical Director with strong interests in both tech and art. My life evolves round VFX, photography, software engineering, tools programming and generally anything that looks / sounds cool.
I have done a variety of CG programming, including fluid sims, muscles, soft/rigid bodies, raytracing etc. These knowledge complement the visual works that I do as a TD in VFX.
I was interviewed by The Straits Times in May 2014 for my VFX work in X-Men: Days of Future Past.
