I would like to know if there is a way to build from scratch a nuclear explosion using Particular. I have to do it for a short film of a friend of mine. I've tried many things but I still haven't found a way to create a explosion that looks convincing. I anyone could at least show me a direction where I can look, that would be great. Thanks.
Spoiler 24 season 6
In the 4th episode of the 6th season, you can see a nuclear explosion that is quite similar to what I have in mind and who seems to have been done with a particle system just like Particular.
Download the Pyropack for Dparticular from thre Trapcode website, this should get you started. There is no simplye solution to this, you need multiple instances of APrticular to create the different effects for initial burst, compression wave, mushromm cloud etc.
