Some years ago I saw a Symbolics demo of a flock of birds flying
around obstacles (columns) without breaking their formation. If anyone
has this demo I would appreciate a copy.
Thanks in advance,
That would be "Breaking the Ice," starring Stanley (the bird) and Stella (the fish).
The effect is called behavior modeling, and is based on Craig Reynold's models of
flocks and schools. As you might have guessed, the movements are programatically
generated. I will send you a tape and fax you an article.
