Nuclear mushroom cloud using particular
on Mar 16, 2017 at 9:25:07 pm


I need to create a "fairly realistic" nuclear mushroom cloud in After Effects, using Trapcode's particular plug-in. It doesn't have to be using that plug-in, but I really think it will give me the best results. My first attempt was using animated fractal noise, Liquify filter, mesh warp, etc. resulted in something the client called a little to "cartoony".

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Dave, you might consider using footage such as from Detonation Films:

Perhaps recolor and time offset versions of this?
