    This is so wonderful, thanks so much, Károly!! I've done this cheese peeling homework many times to get the look just right xD I love that you had to leave out some of the sims due to the graphic nature, I played that up in the SIGGRAPH FastForward video which should be releasing Friday!

    Ray tracing + realistic flesh tearing = Call Of Duty: PTSD

    I love how satisfied Károly is when something looks realistic. it gives me a big dumb smile on my face.

    Technology really is advanced. We can just tear jello, meat, sandwiches, and many more in a simulation. It’s crazy how much tech has evolved.

    The computational time can be easily lowered by roasting for longer

    This channel gets recommended to me every now and then, and I'm amazed at how fast these simulations improve, now I'm interested to see where we'll end up in two years or so, great stuff!

    Great video! Just FYI, tear has two pronunciations, and they have different meanings. When it rhymes with ear, it refers to the liquid our eyes produce when we cry or the act of crying itself. When tear rhymes with air, it means to rip.

    imagine having these types of animations in a ultra visceral game like Doom, or a hardcore horror game. it would be pretty sick

    I love this channel. It just shows how magical technology is, and how it can be improved.

    That mozzarella stick looks a bit warm and gooey, normally it will tear more fibrously along the grain and if it does shear it will crumble a bit.

    Wow! My 5 yo came up while I was watching this and asked, "why is he tearing that meat?". After explaining it, she was like, "I thought is was real meat!", Very impressive.

    Exciting stuff. MPM stuff is my second-favorite type of paper to hear about on this channel behind ML advancements.

    This is absolutely ground breaking! We're moving away from mesh dependent tear to more realistic particle tear. Amazing!

    This works are getting so good that I'm actually observing every detail on the kitchen because I can't see the differences just from memory.
