- I added sound so I sounds as disgusting as it looks!
BRAINS!...This is a 200 frame animation I made for a course about neurological disorders. Rendered in 3D Studio Max with Mental Ray. The hardest part was finding good reference images that I could match up in the viewport.
I found these-->[link]
on istockphoto.com and I was able to make a model sheet in Photoshop. A basically just blocked out the main shapes of the brain and I made a cool looking brain texture using FilterForge---->[link]
From there i made a displacement and bump map to get the extrusions without any unnecessary work. I animated the scale with a repeating out-of-range type and used a Noise modifier, and animated the phase to make it appear as if its rippling and pulsating. Total render time was about 3 hours and 20 minutes at 700x560,24 fps. I cut some of the dead weight off in Flash.
Overall it looks disgusting, which is what i was going for.
Here is the full animation:
