Well, seeing how I'm the one who did the VIP explosion tut, I'd hate to send you away to another site, so, in the meantime, I can write a text version of my video tutorial for you, (and everyone),
if you can give me a few bits of info before I do it
Are you doing a space (zero-g) type explosion, or are you doing an explosion of something closer to the surface of the earth, (or on it) ?
This is important because there are HUNDEREDS of ways you can do this type of effect, and I'd hate to give you a useless tutorial if you know what I mean
Also, I am in the process of doing part 2 of this series that will cover "Inter-earth" object explosions.
(basicly, explosions that are NOT in space)
Lemme know, and I'll add the tutorial to the "How I did It" area for you, and all, to see and learn from
