This is less of a how to and more of a what does. SOmewhere in my memory I remember taking an object (exploded) and attaching a particle emitter to it. Then have the emitter use the faces of the model as it's emitter, almost like exploding it, but not all at once.

What plugin does this?? I looked at napalm and there is anything in there that says use face. I looked at the built in emitter of Lightwave, and it doesn't let you choose a particle either. Am I think of a long ago fling with 3d Max???

I am still using 6.5b... want 7.5 though. :(


Thanks!!

search here and cgtalk for 'explosion'...there are plenty of posts and a few recent ones about how to break an object and blow it up...all in LW...you should upgrade to 7.5, so you dont need plugins...not sure if 6.5b can do it, perhaps....
