Powder explosion

(Nistle10) #1

Hi, I’m new to the community but not to blender. I’ve not had much experience with the physics side of it and I’m looking to create a ten second animation and im hoping for a steer on how to go about it.

I wish to create something like the powder explosion here

I’m thinking of using particles for the debris and combining with a smoke simulation. I’m not sure on the best way to go about it without it having to render for days on end and I would appreciate some advice or a good tutorial link to start me off.
