The synergy of Mechanism of Action and animation.
When we see elements moving, it helps the brain connect the dots and interpret the logic behind complex processes. By zooming in and zooming out, we can transition between micro and macro processes. For example, we can unfold proteins to highlight specific inner parts.
Compared to static schematics, animations allow us to show many aspects without cluttering an image's readability.
Illustrative Mode of Action visualization
Illustration of these mechanism's compared to a rough schematic can improve the readability of the process. With subtle lighting techniques and effects, MOAs can be enriched. Using cinematographic techniques, a hierarchy of all the essential parts of the process can be created. With the same methods, we can guide the viewer's eye and present parts in order of importance. Besides being very communicative, it's a beautiful representation of science.
