Here are some screenshots of the animation I’ve been working on in 3DS Max. These stills are from the intro scene explaining the synthesis of ATP inside the mitochondria. The animation process started off with some sketches and storyboarding of my concept. Then I animated the 2D storyboard images in After Effects and added the audio script. Next, I began modeling basic shapes for the animatic inside 3DS Max and adding camera moves. Currently, I’m refining some of the models and cameras, adding some modifiers and subtle motions to the “cellular scene” and creating a fluid environment. Plenty more work to do so I’m sure I’ll have another updated post soon!
