Using discrete event modeling for effective computer animation control

Abstract

Computer animation is a discipline that has traditional roots within the computer graphics community. Our work shows that discrete event methods within computer simulation can play an important role in helping to organize animations. We discuss an animation of several articulated figures —the dining philosophers scenariovia the control afforded by discrete event modeling and simulation. We have found that multiple models consisting of discrete event and continuous components can provide an easier to understand description of a complex system.
