Real-Time Geometry Caches

Real-Time Geometry Caches
This presentation: Real-Time Geometry Caches was part of SIGGRAPH’s Let There Be Light talk which took place on August 13th 2014. Converting arbitrary animations to a skinning representation is a tedious, time-consuming process for artists. In this presentation a solution is offered, which compiles Alembic geometry caches to a format suited for streaming real-time playback. The result takes full advantage of next-generation hardware with SIMD optimization and multithreading.
