Hey, I remade my heart. If you haven't seen it on CGTalk, here it is:
60 beats per minute (http://magicanimation.com/Heart/60Beat.html)

I couldn't play the quicktime movie. :(

Sorry, man. It's divx, but don't fret. You can view it on a Mac (you're Mac, right?).
codec: http://divx.com

Anyway, here's a still (http://www.magicanimation.com/Heart/G2-after.jpg).

I couldn't play the movie either, but the still image looks very cool - like the shiny texturing.

Is this for a particular project or just for fun?

looks cool

(somehow you coded your page to play the avi with quicktime and this brings the error)

oh, thanks digitalsnake. It played for me here so I thought it was ok. Damn avi!

Yes, this is for an emergency medical training series. Next I have to cut it in half and show the valves and the nodes that cause the beats along with some shots of blood pushing through the aorta.

Okay, now I can see it, thanks Digitalsnake. (and no, I'm using Win98. My LW machine has the latest divx codecs, but it's busy rendering an animation atm.)

That is very realistic, at least as best I can tell. You might try increasing the color highlights, because it looks a little bit plastic, rather than squishy.

But the animation, modelling and texturing are impressive.

Cool dude. Hey I might need a realistic heart like that for an animation soon. How much would charge to use your model?
Contact me by email for details.

Animation looks cool - please post the final version once you've done it (with the inside and blood and stuff!


P.S. How do you go about getting jobs like this? Do you approach hospitals or something?
