A method and a computer system for modeling, in a virtual environment of a computer simulation, virtual contaminants in a scene to be rendered. A processing module, using a graphical user interface on a display device, is used for defining, in a model, a first additive zone of the scene over which a virtual contaminant is to be added, defining, in the model, a second subtractive zone of the scene over which the virtual contaminant is to be at least partially removed, the second subtractive zone being at least partially enclosed within the first additive zone and a memory module is used for storing the model, the model being made available through a storage module for rendering the virtual contaminants on the scene in the computer simulation. A preview mode is used for launching the computer simulation at a rate lower than the expected rate of the computer simulation.

Method and computer system for performing a computer simulation in which virtual contaminants are rendered on a scene thereof. A model defining a virtual environment of the computer simulation is loaded into memory module. The virtual environment defines a first additive zone and a second subtractive zone with vector paths therewithin and being at least partially enclosed within the first additive zone. An image generator module is used for adding a virtual contaminant over the first additive zone, removing, at least partially, the virtual contaminant within the second subtractive zone along the paths in 2D leaving a remaining virtual contaminant in the first additive zone and rendering an image for display comprising the remaining virtual contaminant in the virtual environment using a visual texture of the virtual contaminant. At least one border is defined along the paths for allowing smooth visual transition with one or more neighboring images.

Method and system for automatically customizing a recorded real time simulation based on simulation metadata. Recorded data corresponding to the real time simulation are received by the computing device. The recorded data are organized according to an original simulation timeline. The recorded data are processed by the computing device to generate customized simulation data based on the simulation metadata. The customized simulation data are organized according to an updated simulation timeline. The updated simulation timeline is generated based on the original simulation timeline. For instance, a new datum corresponding to a plurality of recorded data is generated according to the simulation metadata. The recorded data may comprise an action performed by a user interacting with the real time simulation, an event occurring during the real time simulation, a variation of a parameter during the real time simulation, and a screenshot of a display of the real time simulation.
