Apparently, the EA wants to push the limits. Electronic Arts have shown the new hair technology of the Digital Illusions CE’s Frostbite. EA wrote in a blog post:

“In the coming months, we’ll publish blog posts about each part of this new system. On the physics side we’ll look at our Eulerian/Lagrangian model and its various applications, our different constraints, and our style preservation technique.

On the rendering side, we’ll focus on our shading model, multiple scattering simulation and our approach to fine, antialiased hair.

For now, here are a few of the things this new system can do.”

EA’s Frostbite provides dynamic changes of the hair melanin and smoothness parameters, which produces a natural color change (yeah, it’s also pretty creepy). You can watch the video below:

This video exhibits a dynamic change of an artificial coloring of the hair:

Their simulation allows content creators to tweak a large number of parameters to achieve a wide range of behaviors. With this video showing volume preservation amped-up to 11!
