Could anyone else use a 3d plug in of a house exploding towards the camera? You know, kind of a 3d effect, complete with glass bursting out and burning 2x4s? I couls really use one if anyone has any ideas. I have a scene where a man walks out of his house, and then it explodes. I could supply multiple pix of the house I would like to use, if anyone has any interest. Thanx guys!

I could use an exploding house, I also plan on having a shot of one in my next movie, it will end up being a big part of the plot so it'd be awesome if someone would be able to put one together. Thanks.

If anyone is still checking this that needs an exploding house, i just shot footage of the house i needed to blow up, then put various explosions over it with some debris, then threw some sound effects over it and its pretty convincing. Hope it helps anyone if they needed it.

trev and garrett :

you probably want to ask one of the more prominent 3d animators here to work with you on this. I think it'd look better than if someone just made a stock plugin.

try asking billy3d. or maybe kermz. I'd volunteer to help you fellas out, but I'm fast running out of time to finish my own stuff, let alone help very many other people out.
