Northern Lights Productions has started shipping Blaster, a plugin for ElectricImage designed to create explosion effects. It includes a complete dynamics engine built inwith collision detection and response of solid objects.
According to Northern Lights, a user need only pre-score a model using EI Modeler Boolean or knife tools or formZ Boolean or trim tools, and the plugin takes care of the rest.
The software can be used to create other effects involving collisions as well, such as objects dropping into a bowl or a line of Dominoes falling. (Examples of these can be seen at Northern Lights' Web site.)
Blaster is being offered at the introductory price of $299. For more information, visit http://www.northernlightsprod.com.
