Abstract: This paper describes a new method for the generation of fractal objects like mountains and clouds. It is based on the superposition of independent N-dimensional meshes. It is shown that with meshes of dimension higher than 2, it allows the animation of fractal objects, and for example the simulation of cloud dynamics and earthquakes.

Keywords: animation, clouds, cloud dynamics, earthquakes, fractal objects, mountains.
