View Full Version : Explosions with reactor?

05 May 2004, 11:38 AM
Hi this is my first post here, please be friendly:p .

I´ve often heard that reactor is used to make realistic explosions of object, but how??? I want to make a little animation about an exploding statue. I tried to use 3ds max 6.0 PArray but the fragments of the object didn´t fly very realisticly through the air and on the ground.

I hope that anyone could help me with a little tutorial.

yes,reactor is the right thing i know to create realistic animation,you can use fracture (in reactor) to create fragments,for example,a ball which is animated can be exploded into a few fragments.i think you can learn a lot from the tut of reactor.
