Autodesk unites with UCSF and TSRI to challenge you to explore the mysterious world of HIV in vivo. We will provide competitors with a cellPACK model of HIV in blood plasma and a powerful open source app,  called autoPACK. It is up to you to convey humanity's complex relationships with this virus,  be they emotional,  political,  or intellectual. We need your help to excite general audiences with visuals that will help us spread interest in the search for a cure.

We challenge you to use the animation tools available in Chimera, namely the new Animation GUI (Tools>Utilities>Animation), to create a movie and submit it to the challenge.

You may submit to any of the following categories:
• Open Video: (grand prize $2,500 cash) competing against professional animators who are 3 months in
• Open Image: (grand prize $1,500 cash) competing against professional artists who are 3 months in
• Newly opened, 3 day long, Molecular-Viewer-Only: ($250, 3D print of HIV model, and AMD graphics card) competing strictly against other Chimera or PMV users only.

Critical details on the following pages will help you get started immediately:
