It has been a long time since I shared something besides an HDRI panorama. I think I’ve shared nearly my entire library of them. I have to get out there and capture some more! In the mean time, I’ve been working on my library of CG elements.

Today I have a shock wave/explosion element to share. I like to use these as a design accent but they are probably most useful for VFX. Use it however though, I’m not the boss!

I’ve shared this element as a 4096×4096 ProRes 4444. I’ve also included each light as its own pass including the blue flame so you can re-comp these however you need.
