Hello everyone...
I know this is better suited to a more robust 3d application, but as that is not in my skillset I figured I'd ask here. I need to generate some medical 3d imagery, such as a catscan image of a brain or something like that. Couldn't find anything online (searches for "catscan" and "after effects" lead to medical consequences of having a catscan).
Doesn't need to be medically accurate, just cool looking. Any helpful suggestions are greatly appreciated. I'm no 3d guy but I do use Element if that helps at all.
Thanks!

You're gonna love this: shoot it practically.

Get a model of the body part in question. Get one of those gizmos that projects a straight laser line. Set it up so you can move it smoothly. Set up the shot, turn off the lights, and shoot the laser line moving across the model.

If you're good at matching shots, you're all set.
