Do you mean like a nuke? A mushroom cloud thingy? I made one for a game introduction for college a few years ago, but I don't have it anymore, but I remember the method. I even had buildings getting oblitorated.

EDIT: In fact, I have the whole thing on a disc somewhere. I'll see if I can find it. The whole thing was pants not very advanced, I'd only just started using 3D Studio MAX, but the nuke was pretty cool, and advanced for my class.

I could probably make something better than that plutonium rod in 3D Studio MAX. It could glow and everything, and even be smooth so you can't see the polygonal edges of the angular looking curves. And I could even put the 'D' at the end of 'Created.' What did you make that rod on by the way, Milkshape or Anim8tor or something?

Really, Lightwave? Okay then, here's some tips: First of all, you need to do a bit of smoothing on your mesh, make the angular surfaces look more round, I don't know if you can do lens effects in Lightwave, but a nice green glow around the tube would be cool. Also try to sort the lighting out, I find for still images of shiney things having a light in front of the object, and also a light behind but to the side and further away, that gives it a cool look.

I'm not sure how Lightwave works, I never used it, I use 3DSMAX, but you definately need to smooth the roundness. Then it'll be okay. Anyway, back to the contest, elaborate on what you wanna see, I might give it a go.

Lightwave 3d is very easy like the games factory.I never got used to 3dsmax or other 3d programs.They were just too hard to understand and the work space was too crowded.Im trying to get to jimmy neutron quality.Jimmy neutron the movie was created just from lightwave and nothing else.I belive it too after seeing the functions on LW.Hmmmm....., I just wanna see just a plutonium rod explode in anyway. it has to be at least 2 seconds long and 30 seconds maximum.Winner gets the gold.

I updated my plutonium rod.I added ALOT of polygons to make it super smooth. I fixed my spelling.I added a thick glow to the plutonium.Oops, the glow is so strong that it blurs out some of the letters.

I didnt actually ment 'dig', like "Hey! Let's go out and dig in the garden" or "I'm gonna dig a grave". More like: "I dig this!" or "This rocks, I mean.. I dig this.. eumm.."

Ok, im getting my scene ready for a plutonium explosion.I probably have to get rid of the cool global lighting because it takes a hell of a long time to render with it. Im very new to Special effects but lightwave has everything i need.Im using HyperVoxels which is a HV particle emmiter and i have modifyed it so the particles will glow and look like an explosion.Im a newbie in lightwave but getting better every time i do a project.

In lightwave i can just add a particle generator and wind then add a smoke,fire, or glow affect to the particles.

it's just the built in fire effect in max, set to explosion. and the "plutonium" was a meshsmoothed cylinder with the disintegrate parray object (make sure to hide the original cylinder) and kablooey! you need quicktime to see this get it from apple.com
