Group and crowd animation of Butterflies
Platform: Unity 3D Language: C#
Group and crowd animation is an important research hotspot in the field of computer animation. It is significant of behavior simulation of insect swarm, which can be applied to education, scientific research, disaster monitoring, entertainment and other fields. With relying on group animation technology, this design project simulated the group behavior of swarm, such as migration, and developed an interactive virtual reality application. By optimizing the algorithm and testing, the high frame rate can be kept up to meet the frame rate requirement of the virtual reality hardware, even though there are large quantities of insects in the simulation. Through shader programming, the rapid and high-quality insects and scene rendering are achieved. In the application, users can interact with insects in real time, such as observe, attack, and lure them. Fine scenery, simple operation model and nice music are designed as a teaching tool for students, or an entertainment product for all ages of people.
