Hello,

I was wondering if I could get a little help with some subtle explosions I'm working on atm.

Slightly like this :

But not so massive. I've played around with the explosion presets, but I'm more interested in getting the particles firing away.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

My thought would be to set up different emitters for the large volume smoke and the faster moving parts, add hypervoxels and tweak the settings.

you need to parent one emitter to another, and set the child's emitter nozzle setting to "Parent-Emitter." That'll get you those trails. And then you just have another emitter for the main explosion.

As far as the scale, well that really depends on the relative scale of the objects around it. Obviously, particle size and particle amount are both related to how big the thing will look. I would just tweak it until it looks the way you want it to.
