Working on an animation about atherosclerosis. Actually on any given week I seem to be working on an animation about atherosclerosis. With all the research on chloesterol’s effect on the cardiovascular system, this disease has become a hot topic and everyone wants this process highlighted in their trade show events. Still need to add blood cells, platelets, particles, rupture, and the all pervasive medical animation element, shallow depth of field.
The scene was created in cinema 4d R11. I am using the Mograph displace deformers with the default color white loaded in and spherical falloff on either side of the vessel. This allows for easy rigging of the vessel walls to expand (changing the default displace mode of “normals” to linear using the x axis) as the plaque grows within.
Hope to post more soon. Thanks for looking.
