    Elemental Characters: Making Characters Out of Thin Air

Session/Category Title: Elemental, Dear Watson!: The Technology Behind Elemental



    We present a system for creating Air characters for Pixar’s upcoming film Elemental. Our solution combined procedural and simulation techniques in a seamless way to bring characters to life. We preserved the performance and design of our main characters and accommodated the vast scope of secondary Air characters.
