Abstract or description

This paper presents a method for Real Time Muscle Texture Morphing utilizing the Unreal Developer Kit (UDK). The method applies wrinkle map technology to a torso; whereby multiple textures for tense and relaxed body poses are imported into the Unreal engine. The textures are blended using a skeletal control system, which animates UDK’s Scalar Material Options. The results show the system functions in real time (55.57 FPS) but has a 1.46 seconds / 2.62% decrease in FPS and a memory increase of 3.6MB / 5.91%.
