Do any of you talented dudes have any pointers on making a Mushroom Cloud like is produced by an atomic explosion. I have tried and am very disappointed with the results. I have been unable to track down video footage of such a thing and feel it is hopeless. If anyone would like to tackle this project i would be glad to workout a barder to make it worth your while. Thanks for your time

check out "Trinity and Beyond" and "Atomic Filmmakers", documentaries about the atomic bomb tests conducted after WWII by the USA, and the people who were employed to capture those tests on film.
i have both on DVD (together, a double-feature) available in australia thru manga pacific.
check them out here:http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00000IML5/qid=1055678934/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_1/002-1892866-7600002?v=glance&s=dvd&n=507846

There is already a mushroom cloud plugin ... I made it. It's probably in the 3D section or explosions. I've seen it used in a couple of community movies.

Some good footage of atom bombs going off is at the end of Dr. Strangelove. B&W, but good stuff.

Is it possible to create a higher quality mushroom cloud? I mean, come on, is that the best we can do?
It looks like a cartoon, to be honest.
I would think it order to make an effect look convincing, you would need a convincing mushroom cloud, add in bright light plugins, a little shockwave going across the ground and smoke on the floor of it all.
now THAT would be cool.

heres an idea:
how 'bout you contribute a little more to the community than 2 posts in 1 year and make one! people arent always gonna be around to do your work for you.

Marek, be quiet.
Now, you want light and smoke with the mushroom cloud, eh?
Add them yourself with light and smoke plugins.
