Love this

Really like the animated cell but I was trying to figure out how they have managed to get the stuff to blend into each other. i.e. how the ball becomes part of the bigger layer and then pops back out of it

Any thoughts? Just really intrigues me

I don't know much about Houdini, so please take whatever I say with a grain of salt, but...

Houdini comes across as a very powerful procedural FX software. That's what it's predominantly known for as I understand it. Something like what that video shows would make a great procedural effect. Most of their demo reel had a lot of procedural effects going on.

So Houdini just jumped to mind as the software I would first pursue to get something like that to happen. It makes a good deal of sense to use it for those medical animations (or so I would figure never actually using Houdini).

C4D would be another freezable software too in my mind (and I only have experience with 3ds/Maya/Vray once again).

edit: Also Houdini would offer more control over C4D. Also last I checked C4D was still heavily single threaded.

That's just a rule based engine doing it's thing to "particles".

Could be done in a multitude of packages, Houdini being one of them.

"how much would someone charge me to do a tutorial?"

Genuine answer: absolutely nothing. Youtube is free, the advice here is free, sharing is caring etc.
