Medical Visualization: Synapses

After several months of production a new medical visualization clip was finished last december. Based on the knowledge of creating the last project it was easier to get an understanding of the new topic – human synapses, the synaptic cleft and signal transmission.

In addition to new hardware there was a new pipeline tested, using Amazon Cloud Services for GPU-based rendering. This new pipeline ensured fast rendering of some really heavy scenes, which would otherwise have extended budget and timeframe. Some scene elements had more than twenty render passes, used for later compositing.

The team consisted of four people, which gave me the chance to focus on animation, shading, rendering and some additional models this time.

I want to thank the team again, in particular for the great time we had.
