Glass Heart Animation
This is a short animation depicting my first attempt at animating a beating heart. I created a simple glass texture for the heart, and I concentrated on creating the appropriate blend shapes and utilizing modifiers to build a heartbeat loop. After that, I was able to view all sides of the heart by rotating the camera group around the heart. The background heart monitor animation and the transition from faux glass to mesh were created in post using After Effects.
