Introduction Muskeelar is the implementation of a research paper that Dr.
Ashraf and I have written titled “Simplified Muscle Dynamics for Appealing Real-TIme Skin Deformation”. The paper has been accepted as a Regular Research Paper for the 2007 International Conference on Computer Graphics and Virtual Reality (CGVR’07) in Las Vegas in June 2007. This muscle system which I have implemented is suitable for usage in games because it is polygon-based, builds on existing technologies used in games (e.g. smooth skinning) and has very decent performance running on the CPU alone.
The data structures used are GPU-friendly and can be mapped to the GPU for even faster performance. A Comprehensive Look at Hard Surface Modeling for Video Games.
