realistic explosions

Well I know this topic is discussed a lot here but I couldn't really find any good informations out of it....
Well I want to achieve a kind of realistic explosion with pflow..(no afterburn)...well perhaps Rob's new shader but I actually don't know how to use what to do to achieve a neat explosion with plow...well I think it's all the shaders of the particles and that's exactly my problem. I don't know how to do it to get a neat effect...or do you only have to use the Particle Age map???
.....Thanks very much for your help really appreciate it

Thanks Treed...but does they use dust devil in that tuts...
can you create a bit more realistic effects
Old 05 May 2004   #6
I'm not sure about any tuts on Dust Devil. The problem with DD is that you can only use Atmospheric Gizmos to create your effects and not particle systems.

Yah, read this thread.

Also check out Pete's new book called DTE which does all these volumetric particle stuff without a single plugin.
