Knee Replacement Interactive Animation

 

This interactive animation was a class assignment in which were were asked to select a surgical procedure and visually explain it in a simple, yet trustworthy and serious fashion. The project was completed with heavy use of gradient meshes and the implementation was done in Flash utilizing some ActionScript for navigation.

The interactive was aimed to be used by health specialists who would show the surgical procedure to possible patients, while discussing risks and safety factors but  without showing unnecessary -shocking- details that can be seen in recorded footage.

A very important stage of the process was to create realistic materials using Adobe Illustrator and gradients.
