Research in the field of Visual Computing has contributed greatly to increasing the realism of

virtual objects, scenes and characters, by drawing on fundamental mathematical, scientific and
technical principles to create stunning visual effects. Ultimately, however, the realism of a
virtual world is in the eye of the beholder, so human perception must also be considered as an
integral part of the creative process. In the field of computer animation, a major goal is to
create virtual humans with emotion, personality and individual style using a variety of methods.
In our work, we use perceptual insights to help with the task of simulating objects, humans and
crowds. In this talk, I will discuss some of the technical and perceptual challenges of creating
compelling dynamic scenes, from simple colliding spheres to a complex Metropolis, populated with
realistic crowds
