In part 1 of this tutorial I will show you one technique for modeling “spongy bone matrix”, the cavernous mesh-like bone tissue found deep inside human bone.
Even if you aren’t a medical animator, or have no interest at all in science visualization, I think you may learn a few things about metaballs and the mograph module. The mograph tools in cinema 4D are not only great animation tools, but useful modeling aids as well.
Part 2 will cover texturing, lighting and rendering.

• Trimmed some fat and boosted the audio.
Here are some product shots I put together in Cinema 4D. This one was for the heart medication Plavix. I created the animated end tag for the ad spot first and then was asked to create the print ad. It ran in Time magazine in 09, which I suppose was cool.
Medication that prevents dogs from vomiting. These are shots from the animation. Two versions.
Another for a “botox-like” drug, also from an animation.
