This is a test… It is only a test. Had this been a real explosion… Dude in the truck would be toast. This is a composite that I made in AE some time back. Occasionally, I’ll challenge myself to re-create something I see. I saw a number of clips on YouTube that were IR camera recordings of aerial bombing missions. While I was looking for reference clips to study, I found it interesting how much they varied. I built my HUD in AE (Not saying much as it was really not very complicated). The rest was made with nothing more than the photo below. The explosion was made with 4 separate partial systems. All are Trapcode Particular. The glows are Trapcode Star Glow.
