a molecular world



video

I'm testing some ways to rig macromolecules (such as protein and DNA). I used this great script that allows me to import protein structure into Maya. The protein I eventually would like to animate is talin. The above is just a piece of talin (available from PubMed). Because the X-ray or NMR structure of full-length talin has not been achieved, I will have to get creative and use the available truncated versions.

Pressing PAUSE on this project

I've been having some technical problems with the rig. Moreover, I'm getting ready to move to France, so I haven't had much time to troubleshoot. I won't have my own computer while I'm there, unfortunately! Although, I don't know how long I'll survive without a computer... we'll see... à la prochaine!

Rigging almost done...




















I'm still working on the rig. (I'm having some technical issues with the face rig!)

Whenever I have some time (if ever), I will be working on a little animation based on my trip to Europe in 2002. Here's my 'cartoonish' head.
