Hi everybody :beer:

I need to make an explotion, I tried the preset fluid "puffball" that is included in Maya. But I have not been successful.

This explosion is the need to replicate:


Thank-you in advance!

Well that is a pretty complex burst there. It's super hard to make out detail in that, which is really key for reference footage. Looks like you should be using a few particle systems for the debris, then it almost looks like the burst is from water. It sounds like you are kinda new to fluids. I would run through this thread http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=86&t=757114 There is a ton of great info in there to get you started with explosive fluid action.
