Finishing up a 10 minute long animation about how too much cholesterol in the blood stream can eventually lead to atherosclerosis (plaque-clogged hardened arteries). Thought I’d share a short shot of a macrophage entering the space just outside of a damaged vessel where plaque is beginning to form. I’m using some similar techniques as used in a previous post, ie: Cinema 4D deformers used to squish the cell as it enters the space.
Composited the depth pass and AO pass separately in AE. Used Frischluft Lenscare for the DOF and RSMB for, well, motion blur. This stuff grosses my wife out, but I have fun with it.
