Xrayted: Screen full of blood

Here's a an image taken from a recent xray investigation into a disease I picked up from an accidental chemical spill in a rubber duck factory. Image enhanced with RealSoft3D.

Thats the last time I feed the ducks, I didn't know they had teeth like that, they could have your hand off

Very nice surreal abstract image David I love it. A great idea and nice electron microscope like shader too.

hahah, that's awesome!

Very cool.
And I didn't see the ducks at first either

Tell us about the shader you used. Very interesting...

Hi all,

Thanks for the positive feedback (and lack of corrections required )

The shader's written in RealSoft's amazing material language, VSL (Visual Shader Language). For those that don't know, this is an object based language where instructions are objects dragged into an execution list. It provides unprecedented power and versatility and is one of the reason ithis is my 3D app of choice!

In this case it's just a simple matter of defining illumination by the angle of the surface relative to the camera. When the surface is facing the camera, make it dark; when it's facing perpendicular to the camera, make it light. There's a few other materials added to create surface distortions. Very easily done!

thanx! Sounds simple enough, but still, the results are fantastic!

Just had a thought, how to do this effect even if your renderer doesn't support it.

Create your scene and render it with one distance/directional light source pointing in the same direction as the camera, so that the scene is lit face on. Make sure all objects are white and light is white and render without any shadows, GI or ambient light.

Then just negative the image and colourize it if wanted. Easy

hahah, nice!
I think there is a way in 3dsmax...
Thanx for the tip(s)!

very cool work!! love the ducks!

i think you could achieve that look with falloff maps... i dont mean to plug my work but this is one i did with falloffs...


although its not as complex as yours, i think its a similar foundation...

anyway.. NICE!
