In today's tutorial you'll learn how to create and composite an explosion into live action footage using a mix of Cg elements and stock effects. Over the course of the lecture you'll learn how to track footage using Adobe After Effects, create explosions with 3D Studio Max and FumeFX, and how to add debris using Particle Flow. To complete the lesson you'll move into AE and learn how to integrate the various elements into your shot and how stock elements can be layered on top of your Cg to add additional detail and believability.
