i've seen different explosions on this site and other sites like detonation films. however, they dont look as though they would be caused by an energy ball. so i was wondering, would it be possible for someone to make an "energy ball explosion" preset. or, if one is already made, would they send me a link to it.

thanks


PS- if anyone needs an idea of what an energy ball explosion looks like, watch this clip:

The Entergy ball is quite an easy effect to make. Just get a flaming ball preset from the library and then colour correct it and make the fire blue. You can also slow the flaming ball effect down to product a more eye pleasing energy effect.

You can use a normal small explosion and colourise it blue or something. You could then add a displacement wave at the impact site to give that energy ball kind of hit.
