View Full Version : Foetus Material- Bjork's 'Nature is Ancient'

03-06-2005, 07:09 AM
Hey guys,

Anyone seen the Bjork's 3d film clip with the foetus animation, Nature is Ancient?


Amazing clip...

I was wondering if anyone has any success producing the warm/milky like material of a foetus skin, very transparent, and very unique effect (maybe sss,fresnel?)

Any ideas, thoughts will be MUCH appreciated.

Amazing clip indeed.

I read the accompanying text...Maya, but also millions of softparticles and extra layers of textures...mmm...depending on the size, something must be doable with flamefractals also. Not the same quality of course, but...

Very inspiring indeed...

An old try I had done was this:

It needs more work but perhaps it could be a good start.
If you need the source file let me know: I'll search it on my backup disks (by the way DiTools required).
