An animation we are all familiar seeing is a flow of red and white blood cells flowing through a vessel. This video covers how to model each of the cells in preparation for animation.
- [Instructor] In this video, we're going to look at…how to create a flow of blood cells using MASH Toolset.…This video will cover how to quickly model,…both a red blood cell and a white blood cell…to use in our animation,…which will be covered in the next video.…First we're going to create our red blood cell.…So, in the modeling menu we want to go to…poly modeling and then create a cube on our scene.…With your cube selected, go to mesh, smooth…and then change the divisions to two.…
In vertex selection mode we want to…select the top…and very bottom vertex.…Press B on your keyboard to enable soft select.…Holding down B on your keyboard…and left mouse button dragging…you can adjust the radius of this tool.…The we want to scale this down on the y-axis.…Once you've done this select random vertices…and just move them slightly to give it…more of a natural feel.…
With your cube selected, in the attribute editor,…under smooth mesh, turn the smooth mesh preview on.…Now you can see this is a very quick way…of making a red blood cell shape.…
