Hi, this looks to be a pretty good tutorial, but it says for beginners, I’m a total beginner and newb to Carrara. First thing that I had an issue with was on page 2. Apply the atomize deformer; for those starting out like myself that deformer can be found in the properties panel click on modifier then the + and complex deformations. Atomize will be the first choice. Then it took me awhile to figure out (page 4) that you can’t turn off cast shadows in the modeler, You must go back to the assembly room to do that. Now I am kinda lost with the particle emitter. I’ve added the emitter to the blob itself; not sure if that is correct or not Inside the particle emitter there are basic and advanced tabs. Basic is confusing enough you said Emit dispersion +9 what is that? Dispersion angle 9.0 deg maybe? Now we need to duplicate the emitter then invert it.. is that done by going to the menu bar, edit, then duplicate, then flip? This is how I’ve done it so far. I tried to test it and Carrara crashed. The next part I’m really lost on and cannot get past it. “Add a cloud primitive. Change to the modeling room and Make the container a sphere” What is a cloud primitive? Is that a cloud from the browser at the bottom or is it up top where we created the sphere? Either way I cannot find an option to make the container a sphere. Any further details / help would be appreciated, your tutorial is so much better than anything I could put together.

this is very interesting I will be working on this one to use the explosion in various projects.
