Alright like most of you, I spent a lot of this weekend thinking about underwater explosions and more specifically… underwater IMPLOSIONS!
See, when an explosion or charge is set off underwater the force of the explosion diminishes and the pressure of the surround water collapses in. Take a minute to visualize this… feel free to include sound effects as needed. So naturally I started experimenting with ways to create the effect using clips in our Action Essentials 2 kit and I think the results are pretty convincing.
For the tutorial I wanted to incorporate it into a cool scene but my bathtub was full of my kids toys so I had to build my own underwater silent destroyer!
The first thing I did was buy a 3D model from an online marketplace, then I brought it into 3DS max for lighting and animation. In After Effects I added the atmosphere and built the exciting implosion!! Stay tuned.
