Happy New Year!

Wishing all a happy and healthy 2016.

I’ve been working on some new shots for a new reel for MadMicrobe.

This one depicts a tight bombing run and pull out over space squids a dendritic cell; a component of the immune system whose role is to process any harmful antigens it comes in contact with, and then present fragments of those antigens on its surface (the little dummied-down spheres) to T-cells which. Through a cacade of events,  these T-cells will trigger the production of antibodies from plasma cells, which will then help the immune system seek out and destroy these antigens.

 

In other news, I have picked up a few new bits of software that I am excited to add to the creative arsenal.  I am working with Solid Angle’s Arnold Renderer using the plugin for Cinema 4D and loving it so far. Will post some images when I have something worth sharing. I’ve also finally gotten TurbulenceFD which is one I’ve been wanting to get for quite awhile. Still much to learn.

Cesar Vonc has released an update to his useful and fun Pro3durale plugin for Cinema. Proc3durale 2 has many more features and is much faster than before. Here is a sort of stylized depiction of trabecular/spongy bone which I was able to create after  about 30 minutes of play. Thanks for looking.

  • Hi Joel – Great to see a new post, really dig the space squids! TurbulenceFD is a ton of fun, and there are a healthy number of tuts on youtube now that cover specific settings/etc. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

  • Hi Mark and thanks. And yes between Lynda/Andy Needham and Josh Johnson Im learning a lot. Looking forward to using in a project.

  • Hi Joel, as always really nice looking medical animations! Saw your presentation for NAB 2015 on cineversity these days. Very inspiring approach. I would love to see the tutorial on how you finish that animation.😉 I know, time rushes, but if you plan to do a tutorial, this one would be great.
