Inside Pregnancy: Labor & Birth
The sixth installment of our series is an inside look at the progressive stages of labor followed by a natural birth delivery. You'll learn how the muscles of the uterine wall are all working together to simultaneously push your baby down and dilate your cervix. With one final push-in, we'll show you how the bones in your baby's skull will move and overlap in an effort to ease the delivery process. With your baby's first breath, the incredible journey is complete.
"We faced so many challenges with this piece, but the biggest, the one that would make or break the entire thing, was how to create the uterus so it could perform all the functions we needed it to. With the combination of a creatively designed rigging system, progressive morph targets, multiple deformers, and a ton of hand key-frames we were able to make it happen."
