View Full Version : Animated Sperm cell

02 February 2007, 03:45 PM
Hey I had done a scene called Swim for Life with sperm cells swimming toward an egg. it was a 3d still but now I am thinking about animating it. So far I modeled up a test sperm cell and then added a dynamic hair system curve and gave the cell a little jiggle and wiggle. No fames were keyed just pressed play and rendered it out. Tell me what you think. (

well, that looks like a sperm on speed in a raveclub getting electroshocked. why not just rig it with a spline-ik and loop the animation? that way you have best control and its easiest to make.

Yea I could do that but I really did it this way to kinda experiment and see the type of results that I can produce using the hair dynamics system. Its not animated yet thats just natural jiggle. Sperm cells move with short fast movements.

Here is a natural sperm vid

I will post updates soon.
