The animation was produced as part of my graduate research project and as part of an advanced Autodesk Maya Course in the Biomedical Communications program. The animation aims to show general entry of an HIV virus into a T-cell lymphocyte, with a particular focus on the surface receptor, Envelope. Technical challenges addressed in the animation involve communicating the appearance of blending and merging two object entities into one in Maya. Compositing of shots was done in AfterEffects.
