We describe new techniques for the parallelization of an unconditional stable solution scheme of the Navier-Stokes equation that has recently been introduced for animation purposes. The parallel improvement over existing schemes eleminates the sequential bottleneck. Aditionally our solution method makes use of time steps which are bigger than the framerate for interpolation between them. We achieve real-time animation rates foe several examples on current multi-processor workstations and PC's.
