Allan McKay focusses on one project in this DVD. He shows you how to work through the problems in detail. You will learn a lot about Pflow and Glu-3Ds Pwrapper to make your particles look like lava. I liked his Advanced Visual Effects #1 even better.
Visual Effects guru and particle effects master Allan McKay is back with another round of stellar particle effects as part of his latest training kit: Turbo Training: Advanced Visual Effects 2.

This time out, Allan has created seven new project-based tutorials that push the built-in Particle Flow particle system to the limit and beyond. With a running length of over 6 hours, this training DVD is aimed at intermediate and advanced users. Allan starts off with easier effects like creating a DNA strand out of particles, then ramps up to more complex natural effects including procedural lava and particle fire, as well as building a crumbling iceberg, splashing barrels and exploding tanks.

To achieve several of these effects, Allan spends time showcasing two Autodesk Certified Animation Plug-ins: AfterBurn 3 and Particle Flow Tools: Box 1 and discusses how they can extend what the core PFlow particle system can do.

Finally, Allan illustrates how to set up your render passes and through the use of Eyeon's Digital Fusion compositing application, blends the various layers together to achieve the final effects.
