I am not experienced by any means to video copilot or After Effects, I am a php programmer and 3d matte painter I ordered the design bundle of video cp version 2.. I got my matte painting all together and I have spent roughly 9 hours trying to create this effect here https://www.americasarmy.com/aapg .... if you look at the explosion scrolling.. I have tried to create the explosion dot by dot and have had no luck. I am no sure how to accomplish this.

Hi codefreak, welcome. I presume you mean the rock fragments flying passed? What exactly are you having problems with? Creating the rocks? Layering them in front of/behind the soldiers? Animating them or the soldiers? getting them into 3D?

Hi, there are a lot of ways; from using keyed stock footage of debris to making your own. If you have a look at the following tutorial it explains one way of making your own using the Shatter Effect.

If you have Element (I imagine that's what the design bundle is for?) the standard Model Starter pack has a Ball Fracture and a Floor Fracture model that you could use. Open Particle Look/Multi Object/Enable/ then play with the settings.
