does any body know how to make a building explode? i know to use hard effects and use the knife tool to cut it up but i'm lost there because when i use hard effects the the building becomes separate flat 2d pieces not whole objects which i need. :lwicon:

If you want solid pieces you have to make them. That is what crackit does. Basically randomly breaks up the object and makes solid pieces out of it.

You can find it here (http://www.zshare.net/download/4400553577097d/).
