I need to find a quick, sharp, and fiery explosion, but the FxHome presets aren't doing the job. Please help!

Well then, you have two options. First, you could edit one of the presets to get it to look more like what you are after; all of the presets are totally modifiable. Second, you could try some stock footage, which is likely to look better than a preset as well. There's some free stuff available from FXhome here, or you could look into purchasing some of the excellent footage available from [url=http://www.nccinema.ch/webshop/]Sollthar, from FXhome or from www.detonationfilms.com. There are lots of other places you can purchase stock as well, of course, but its hard to beat the value offered by those three.
