    VFXCast down - anyone have Fireworks tut?

    So VFXCast has been down for over a week now, does anyone have the fireworks tutorials downloaded?

    It's the how to do fireworks in lightwave tutorials, 3 parts. I heard they were very good and I've just come to a project that needs fireworks.

    I only have bought ones, but essentially, try creating particles for:

    1) 1 particle firing up into the sky
    2) a trail falling off off (1) - high luminosity for sparks
    3) 8-20 particles exploding off (1) when it dies
    4) a trail off each of (3) - colored luminosity.

    See how far that gets you

    have a great day

    More reference and inspiration..Boy do I miss those waterfestivals in stockholm, where they held world championships in fireworks, each day of the festival was dedicated to the performance of one country.
