I'm going to see if I can fit in an entry for this between all the other things on my plate!

Good luck everybody!

All that movement in the clouds... somehow looks incredibly beautiful and yet horrific all at the same time...

Three (overnight) test renders I did over the last few weeks:

http://vimeo.com/9389534 <= 1st test with particles, shader and rig for moving particles on mesh surface (thought this was too bright for too long)

http://vimeo.com/9389721 <= 2nd - modified timing of colour changes and added a ground level blast ring.

http://vimeo.com/9389769 <= 3rd - a more detailed blast ring and just started looking at overall colour of image - unfortunately I think the crown of the explosion is becoming too "smooth" - will add greater variation to particle sizes. Cloud shape needs to become more irregular over time.

If I find time I'll rebuild the rig to include the smoke column, cloud erosion effect and some vapour rings...
