The simulation of natural phenomena such as clouds, smoke, fire and water is one of the most important research areas in computer graphics. [...] Key Method To take account of the dynamics, we used a method called the coupled map lattice (CML). CML is an extended method of cellular automaton and is computationally inexpensive. The proposed method can create various types of clouds and can also realize the animation of these clouds. Moreover, we have developed an interactive system for modeling various types of…Expand
