Abstract. This paper presents a method to accelerate the collision detection between particle systems and objects of a scene through the use of a five-dimensional grid. The method is based on the fact that the future trajectory of a particle can be represented using only five parameters, ignoring the particle’s speed. Some results of the speed up and the advantages obtained through the use of this method are shown.
