I'm looking for a tutorial for creating a photo realistic mushroom cloud explosion, using Napalm or Layout particles, or just about anything practical.

One of the lightrom CD's had a mushroom cloud scene by Dean Scott, not sure if it is available on the web.
Best place to try would be: http://members.shaw.ca/lightwavetutorials/

Or post a message in the LW mailing list / newsgroup as Dean frequents both of them.

I would play around with particles and wind in layout. Try to move the particles with wind in the rolling shape of the mushroom cloud. Hypervoxels can be slow but you can get some great results with them.

Check the Siggraph 2002 PFX content....
It has a basic setup that does just that.....

I believe it's called Demo_AtomicBomb.lws

It should be a good start anyway...
