Incredible Realism

Attention to Detail

Every animation has real world explosion characteristics.


Choose Your Resolution

All 50 elements come in 2 versions: a lower quality one for faster renders and an incredibly high quality version for closeups and hero shots.

Presets to Get You Started

Includes preset scenes for Arnold, Octane and Redshift.

The preset scenes are a great place to start. They include multiple ramps and color shaders, including some great ones courtesy of Dom Riccobene: instagram.com/dom.riccobene

Below is the video for VDB Explosions Pack 1, which includes a useful tutorial for how to use them.

This has got to be the best and most polished product for digital artists I’ve seen in a long time.

VDB Explosions Volume 2

Saves so much time not having to do simulations and you have so many options to choose from. Rarely do I have to jump into Houdini or Xparticles unless I have to do something super specific.

I gotta say, the VDBs that I’ve used so far are unbelievable. The realism and detail are amazing!
