Abstract

In this paper, we propose a method to express the change of cloth wetting in rainwater in real time. The method includes generating a mask image for displaying a raindrop region, gradually extending the mask to animate the raindrop, and applying a rendering attribute such that the designated region looks like an actual raindrop. This paper focuses on the expression of rain-wet clothing, unlike previous research on the rainy scene. The results of this study make rainy scenes more realistic and can be used for real-time applications such as mobile and online games.
