Abstract

The Rusterizer is an art-directable tool designed to facilitate the creation of rust on the surfaces of 3d models. Cellular automata are combined with a procedural shader to create an animated growth effect. A workflow for using the tool is provided. The result is demonstrated with a time-lapse animation of a robot in an alley as it rusts. Future extensions and improvements to the tool are suggested.
