God those explosions are beautiful, I can't believe they're CG!

I felt it a duty to help all of us who had issues getting the same look as Andrew. What I discovered was the lighting. The lighting was not covering the smoke properly, so all of our videos was looking cloudy, white and washed out. So I went back to the lighting settings and started to change the rotation etc and then the clouds started to appear shadows etc.

Hi Andrew, first thanks for this awesome tutorial, and I have something to ask you, I followed the steps extremely close to you and at the end, the result looks so ugly, like that: http://gyazo.com/1be3e1c86a4645b916e54f98e1c05959
I'm sorry to asking you that, but could you give us the project files of the one that you made please, that would be really helpfull for me.
Thanks Andrew,

Tiemen

judging from the picture, Its your spacing and probably lighting and options with in the lighting, but def your spacing. Set the number to around 1 or 2.

Hi, I've done this tutorial multiple times and I've done similar tutorials like this one. I am very familiar with Fume FX at this point but it seems like no matter how close I follow the tut, my result looks different. I must have a bizarre preset or something is wrong with my copy. Could you provide me with the tut fume fx file? I know it's a lot to ask but it would be SO helpful in diagnosing the issue. Thanks much!!
