This is an organically shaded T4 Bacteriaphage Virus. The virus is procedurally shaded using sub-surface scattering for a realistic effect. A particle cloud creates the effect of nano bubbles suspended in a liquid medium. Volumetric lighting combined with mental ray environmental shaders create the perfect atmospheric ambiance to give this scene a sense of depth and realism.Lastly Film grain is artificially added to make the scene look like it was taken through a low resolution microscopic camera, the film grain can easily be removed in the effects panel if desired.
This is the perfect package for those tight turnaround times, a completed animated scene with no work needed or customize it to fit your needs. Excellent for medical presentations and animations. This scene has been engineered to render as fast as possible even though it uses heavy atmospheric and volumetric shaders.
Enterobacteria phage T4 is a bacteriophage that infects E. coli bacteria. Its DNA is 169-170 kbp long, and is held in an icosahedral head. T4 is a relatively large phage, at approximately 90 nm wide and 200 nm long (most phages range from 25 to 200 nm in length). Its tail fibres allow attachment to a host cell, and the T4’s tail is hollow so that it can pass its nucleic acid to the cell it is infecting during attachment. T4 is only capable of undergoing a lytic lifecycle and not the lysogenic lifecycle.
