Fracture Contest

There is a contest going on in the Fracture beta forums. Basically the goal is to create a production finished shot using fracture. My original concept was grand and I had to reduce it to this. In the shot an explosion goes off blowing out the side of the building. Aside from the Fracture there are some other things going on in the shot. There is the initial explosion from the fractured geometry. The there is a nParticles sim of smaller debris flying out. Along with an additional nParticle sim of some dust flying out. A fluid sim for the explosion and the firs in the window is live footage of fire on a plane in the shot. It was just easier to track that way since I already had the track in Maya. This is the final comp result.
