Floating Blood IRAY/Realflow/C4D

A little experiment I made with Realflow, M4D-IRAY, and Cinema 4D. Fluid simulated in Realflow. Rendered on a GPU inside Cinema 4d using M4D-IRAY. Note the transparency falloff gives the blood more credibility

Their has been a little talk on youtube about this video regarding viscosity and darkness. When blood leaves the body it starts thickening and darkening almost immediately. The blood would look like this with this thickness after 30 seconds to a minute. I work in an ER where I deal allot with bloody patients that I have to suture. That was actually one of the reasons for me to make this video. I always get irritated when they get it wrong in the movies.

You continue to amaze me with your tests/work.

I would like to ask a question though, for the past year or so i've started getting medical illustration and animation work.

What'd like to know is do you need a high powered machine for M4D-IRAY?

I currently have two machines the first being a 2011 iMac which i'd been using for all my work until last month when I got a brand new Mid 2012 13 Inch Mac Book Pro 2.5 GHz Core i5, 4GB 1600 MHz DDR3 on Mountain Lion & the iMac on Lion both systems are exactly the same i think.

So what kind of render times are you looking at, and will my current systems.. particularly the Mac Book Pro handle it ok?

I'm just wondering as both sysems handle AR3 quite well with 8 render buckets and the same for Vray, Indigo & Physical Renderer seems quite good too.

Of course my systems could be ALOT more powerful especially in a tower based mac etc but these systems were all that I can currently afford.

I'm interested to know your experiences with it.

Thanks again.

Johnny.

Let me clear up an important point. IRAY is a GPU renderer, so the strength of your system is less important than the kind of graphics card you are using. For my work I use a system with two GTX 590s resulting in 4 GPU Cores with 2048 Cuda Cores. With that system I get an about 700% speed increase in comparison to a 3Ghz Quad Core CPU.

The blood is excellent. That nice translucency fall off from the very dark red.
Why not add it to your M4D-Iray gallery thread.

I will have to remember that one. That would be a fun animation.
