Hi !
So I am just messing around in c4d and I am trying to figure out exactly how the FX explosion works.
So I made this funky intro but I only have one problem. It doesn't seem to read my colider floor ?
my explosion goes right through the floor and I added a Rigid body to my explosion and it just goes right through!
what am I doing wrong ?
thanks :)

Explosion FX is a much older way of doing that kind of thing and as such doesn't work real well with Dynamics but you can get them to interact (at least in Studio) with a Fracture object like this

Note Dynamics moves the object but not the Explosion FX child (that's just the way it works) you have to set off the explosion right away or the whole thing looks wrong.

A much better way of doing this is to use dynamics and something like the Thrausi plugin for cutting the object into pieces.
