Realistic Blender Explosion Tutorial

Boom!About two months ago we reported on a contest to create the most realistic explosion in Blender (Elysiun thread here). There were many fine entries, but this one by Rhysy2 was the clear winner. Great job to Rhysy and everyone else that participated!

Not content to sit on the knowledge himself, Rhysy has been kind enough to create a tutorial for everyone to download (.pdf). Don't forget to let us know what cool explosions you come up with using this technique. Now if Rhysy could just write a tutorial on how to pronounce his nickname.

Update: this tutorial is now also available in German. 


  1. @Joel
    The one I have (from the pdf link) works fine. What version of Blender are you running? Have you tried downloading it again?

  2. Well I am baffled. So here is me throwing ideas out there:

    1) I downloaded it last week, so maybe the one on the site now is corrupted or cursed. I could send you the one I know definitely works and see if that solves the problem.

    2) Are you using the x64 version of Blender 2.41?

  3. Rhysy = Ree-See...:)

    The download works for me, though I sometimes have problems. Try clearing your internet cache ? Also, be aware the .blend is rather unstable and may crash at random - unfortunately, I've no idea why this is.

  4. I can get the pdf. does anyone know were i can get it, or could the Please send it to me. alabandit (place at sign here)
