The burned ground was achieved with a quick spot of grading to make it darker in that area. A mask was used so that it only affected that part of the ground.

That simple? i thought it would was something like an actual image of charred ground that was composited over the top.

I've always said how cool grading and masking is.

A proper matte painting would no doubt yield better results. But yeah, for the example we're talking about, it was simply so extreme grading. smile

I achieved something similar using a still frame from a particle effect designed for that purpose. Then I used a circle mask over the first 8 frames or so to make the charred space "grow" as it first formed.

However, this method is probably slightly more complicated and didn't improve the effect tremendously. Just thought I'd throw out another option though.
