Here’s a clip from a 10-minute animation about HDL-cholesterol and it’s effects on the body. The client had asked us to choose several shots from the show and repurpose them into a shorter piece: an “eye candy” montage that would be displayed on a super-wide wraparound screen mounted above a cafe booth at a trade show. The dimensions were 1800 x 400 pixels. Click the full screen toggle for a better view.
I used cinema 4d and the mograph module to set up the blood flow, and then used the aging but trusty pyrocluster shaders applied to a particle emitter inside the vessel to add the sense of smoky plasma whooshing through. Not happy with how the pyrocluster smoke came out, a bit patchy, but hope to remedy it soon. Really needs sound!
