Then Stan, our technician at the uni came up with a similar effect - in just 2 days.
This then enabled me to produce something close to the effect I was looking for if not the exact effect.
Which is nice, if not quite what was required.
I particularly liked the way the blood corpuscles obscure the plasma glow when they pass in front of the nucleus.
I'm also quite pleased with the effect of the electrons, I was able to use a material - with only a little adjustment - that I used for my last 3D film made to the specifications for an exhibition - although not entered for it, the exercise was done simply for the interesting outlined requirements.
The original material was used as a glass, this only needed some few changes to give it this effect of a burned, or crunchy surfaced texture.
A previous attempt resulted in this:
Which in my opinion is so far removed from the desired effect as to be laughable. But don't throw anything away, I might need weird ribbons one day.... possibly.
