Recently I actually started Dynamics in class, these references were really helpful for my projects, acting as good stellar guides and reference material to be used.
These were really fun to make and looked nice, I enjoyed the explosion and volcano, they both went over rather smoothly with dynamic particles. I would love to more fluids to use as reference for dynamics
I do wish I had something to contribute back, but most the good things I have in my reference material folder already seems to be here. I do hope that this thread continues on and will post up more great material to come.

how would still print commercial stuff get created? Would it be done in real flow as an animation and then freeze framed, or would the whole thing be modelled? For example these sprite and coke commericals.
