New technologies and methods are transforming the field of forensic science. Today scientists use DNA tests, high-performance liquid chromatography, mass spectrometry, 3-D computer imaging, and other advanced technologies to reconstruct crimes and accidents. The new forensic science can distinguish trace elements and organic materials down to the level of only a few hundred molecules.
This series of 3D animations details the scientific techniques that enable advanced forensic analysis. Created for the Visible Proofs Exhibition at the National Library of Medicine, the New Forensics Animations make the science of DNA understandable to the casual viewer.
Production details: 3D Modeling and animation in Maya, video sweetening in After Effects, HD finish, DVD distribution
