Adding “Texture” to our Medical Work
3D Medical animation is a delicate process. Generally, modeling and rigging needs to be spot-on or a close approximation of the real thing. Modeling and animating parts of the human anatomy, anatomical systems, medical product samples, or medical diagrams all take a certain degree of attention to detail and accuracy. It is more a science than creative art, which is not to say that art is not involved. Whenever you’re trying to create a convincing and realistic looking 3D medical model or 3D medical animation, texturing is one of the most important pieces to consider.
The textures on any 3D model are always important, as proper texturing, even on a relatively simple “cartoony” looking model such as those featured in The Incredibles, goes a long way toward creating a convincing 3D animation. It is especially true in the Medical industry, though, that really utilizing proper lighting and texturing can create not only a realistic looking 3D medical image, but can help separate different components needed for medical training and understanding through the use of contrasting colors, bump, and specular mapping, etc.
3D medical modeling and texturing go hand in hand, and DDA Video specializes in both. For professional medical marketing and training animations that help any medical office or organization, come to DDA. You’ll be glad you did!
