View Full Version : Endotracheal Tube

08 August 2003, 07:36 PM
I usually don't venture out of the LW forums, but I thought I'd post here with something a little different from the norm.
It's not anime, or a mech, car, fantasy (well, maybe someone's). It's <yawn> medical.
Truth is, I spent too much time on these so I want to show them around.

Animations (

I'd like to hear what you all think.

Looks good to me, I think they will do the job.
One thing I noticed was that the tube is deforming to a path, and the path makes a turn in mid-air, that looked kinda wierd, but no big deal since it's an information anim.
How did you make the light glow through the neck? Sub-surface scattering?

There's a translucency map on the throat. I tried having the actual internals in there, thinking the parts would cast the appropriate shadows, but it didn't work. I had to paint a map and cheat it instead.
I am using G2 for the skin, which is a SS shader, among other things.

I'm not sure about the dual screen errors. They're just divx clips.
