    Pandora in Motion: Plant Simulation in the Avatar Sequels

Session/Category Title:   Avatar: The Way of Fluid Dynamics



    We introduce a new workflow for plant animation built for Avatar: The Way of Water. The workflow combines new solver features with a suite of procedural workflows to streamline the massive scope of setting the virtual world of Pandora in motion, while pushing the quality beyond Wētā FX’s previous capabilities.
