I used a paper towel cut into disks and moistened with water. This allows me to replace a disk if it gets too soiled with rotting food.
Thank you Steven. I believe that would translate to 5 hours (120sec film x30fps x5s)/3600sec/hr = 5.
Can you also tell me what the base material the physarum is on? I've generally used agar, but have tried a few variations as well.
I think this was captured at one frame every 5 seconds and 30 frames per second play-back.
The slime did penetrate the fungus but it left behind the fibrous structure after digestion, a skeleton of sorts.
How long a period was this captured over?
I'm an enthusiast for (real) animation, this could be used as art- especially in one of the darker eastern European style works.
The pulsations are interesting- about the rate of a human heart at rest, and far more apparent as the growth spurt of a given section is done and it settles to feeding- did the slime penetrate the fungal food?
