I really need to create a nuclear explosion with 3ds Max. I've looked around for some tutorials, but I didn't find any really good ones. Ones that I found were a little bit too cartoony, i'm trying to go for realistic. If anyone knows how I can make the mushroom cloud, or has a link of where i can learn to make a mushroom cloud, can you please let me know?
I'm using 3ds Max 5, with no extra plugins (if i need plugins to do this let me know, i can probably find some somewhere)
