Hi,

I'm doing a project where I have to visualise underskin stitching after a medical procedure.

What needs to be shown in short is, the epidermis (outer skin) being cut open and then separated from the dermis (inner skin). The dermis being cut open and finally the underskin stitching of the dermis which will automatically pull the epidermis back together making it overlap a little bit.

My question is, what is a good way to make the cut in the epidermis? I was thinking about using endomorphs for the opening and closing of the skin. Is this a good approach or would you recommend another approach for this (dynamics...)?

All tips are welcome.

Thanks

Yes you can make morphs for the open and closed states. Then you need to animate the opening of the incision. I posted an example in this thread that shows how to animate a morph over time to get the effect of an incision opening. http://forums.newtek.com/showthread.php?145533-Surgery-showing-scalpel-cutting-flesh-Suggestions-on-how-to-accomplish-this&highlight=
