Kelvin Li from Nucleus Medical Media shows how deformers aid in visualizing a white blood cell with psuedopodia arms.

Kelvin Li from Nucleus Medical Media shows how deformers aid in visualizing a white blood cell with psuedopodia arms. Kelvin uses a Bulge deformer to define the basic shape, and then uses a Displacer with falloff to create psuedopodia. Animating the rotation of the sphere independent of the Displacer makes the psuedopodia appear to crawl over the surface. Kelvin adds Sub-Polygon Displacement and an additional Displacer to texture the overall object.

Recorded live at the 69th Annual Meeting of the Association of Medical Illustrators, at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
