Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How to create realistic explosion?

I created an explosion using cascade particles but it is very basic and doesn't look that realistic (It's something like starter content explosion) but I wanna know how to create realistic explosion in unreal engine. I saw infiltrator breakdown but as I use blender I couldn't find a way to render smoke stimulation on planes (If you know how to render it then please post below) but anyway do you guys have any Idea to create realistic explosions? Thanks in advance.

Creating realistic explosions usually revolves around running fluid simulation in your content creation package, and baking results to a flipbook texture.

You can do that in unreal too, but that is more advanced. You can start off here.

What about this: I created a realistic explosion in blender using smoke stimulation and what about rendering it out as png images (with 16 bit transparent background) per frame from orthographic view and using those images as flip book texture.
