I don't think visionlab has those capabilities, however Fxhome's newest product, Hitfilm.com does.

I experimented with this a long time ago and just finally gave up. Nuclear weapons' mushroom clouds have a rolling motion. Vision Lab can't do this because the particles are 2D. Maybe try finding some nuclear test stock footage and rotoscoping the mushroom cloud out of it. I have seen a few movies and T.V. shows do it that way but have never tried it my self.

ya, i agree with rockfilmers. visionlab can't really do stuff like mushroom clouds, but stock footage is really good for things like that. go to "downloads" and then click "alam dv pluggins" and search explosions. there are some cool looking ones there that you can download if you own effectslab, compositlab, or visionlab. or you can buy fxhome's "stock footage: explosions" pack that they sell in their online store.
