Creation of an Instructional Animation Showing the Development of the Human Placenta from Implantation to Term James Scott Montgomery, BS, BA Lewis E. Calver, MS, CMI, FAMI Barbara L. Hoffman, MD Angela M. Diehl, MA
The Animation Present an extensive overview of placental development Directed to a medical student and resident audience Includes narration and three-dimensional representation of a placenta villous tree
Placental Development Complexity and Importance Process of continuous change Most methods of study are two dimensional in nature Understanding can help a student understand how different pathologies affect the placenta
Currently Available Resources Penn Medicine Placenta formation Excellent foundational information Attractively rendered Dated Too general No three-dimensional component component
Currently Available Resources Valuable content Well drawn Content is too general No sound or narration No three-dimensional component Lucinda Foundation Placental Formation
Currently Available Resources Simbryo Excellent information Great depth and detail Lacks narration Monetary cost No three-dimensional component
Methodology 3D Asset Building Autodesk Maya 2012 and MEL Scripting
Methodology 2D Asset Building 2D Assets created in Adobe Photoshop
Methodology Final Audio, Animation, and Compositing Final compositing and animation in Adobe AfterEffects Final Audio Editing in Adobe Audition
Methodology Evaluation How visually appealing is the animation? How clear is the information in the animation? How likely are you to recommend this animation to others? How likely are you to use this animation? Did you find the three dimensional quality of the animation helpful in understanding the architecture of a villous tree?
Feedback Its great This is an excellent animation and I plan to replay and study from it. Overall I think its great and clearly depicts formation of the placenta. The video is great and it has a lot of potential, thanks.
Conclusion Results were overwhelmingly positive and show that my audience felt that this animation was helpful Limitations: Only 7 of the 23 people watched the animation and took the survey Future investigation should include –Larger sample size –Pre and post test evaluation to evaluate information retention
